and see, it doesn't mention state contributions to Medicaid

2018-03-03 02:55:53 UTC  

Sp healthcare is under by about $200 billion

2018-03-03 02:56:02 UTC  

hmm

2018-03-03 02:56:29 UTC  

WE are going to need to do a bill to on the Medicaid situation

2018-03-03 02:56:43 UTC  

ok

2018-03-03 02:56:46 UTC  

Here is the problem

2018-03-03 02:57:03 UTC  

the budget is acting as if both the Spending and revenue still occurs at the state level

2018-03-03 02:57:06 UTC  

as if nothing had changed

2018-03-03 02:57:11 UTC  

But Medicaid doesnt' exist

2018-03-03 02:57:15 UTC  

anymore

2018-03-03 02:57:34 UTC  

So what is that money going to

2018-03-03 02:57:46 UTC  

so how exactly did atlascare affect that

2018-03-03 02:57:55 UTC  

Abolished Medicaid

2018-03-03 02:58:08 UTC  

and incorporated it into the subsidy

2018-03-03 02:58:19 UTC  

So the entire cost of Mediciad is borne through the subsidy at the federal level

2018-03-03 02:58:32 UTC  

and the federal expense list should include both portions

2018-03-03 02:58:51 UTC  

Our deficit is thus worse than what the GM department says

2018-03-03 02:59:17 UTC  

💀

2018-03-03 02:59:36 UTC  

We need to find a way to transfer that state revenue to the federal level to cover the state portion presently not included

2018-03-03 02:59:41 UTC  

that 39%

2018-03-03 02:59:53 UTC  

is about $234 billion

2018-03-03 03:00:02 UTC  

which is the same amount that the deficit is undervalued by

2018-03-03 03:00:14 UTC  

1,134 Trillion

2018-03-03 03:00:24 UTC  

or somewhere around there

2018-03-03 03:00:40 UTC  

yep

2018-03-03 03:00:49 UTC  

The good news is this is funded

2018-03-03 03:00:57 UTC  

the money is just sitting in the wrong place

2018-03-03 03:01:04 UTC  

1.138 T

2018-03-03 03:01:14 UTC  

We have to find a way to get that money kicked up to the federal level

2018-03-03 03:01:28 UTC  

Either with regional agreements,

2018-03-03 03:01:55 UTC  

or with them cutting the taxes that pay for it and us enacting them federally

2018-03-03 03:02:17 UTC  

That gets us back to $900 billion

2018-03-03 03:02:32 UTC  

Then we come up with the rest of the shortfall presently in healthcare

2018-03-03 03:02:34 UTC  

I think we can get the regional governments to cough up some money

2018-03-03 03:02:55 UTC  

which appears to be about $200 billion

2018-03-03 03:03:03 UTC  

so $700 billion deficit

2018-03-03 03:03:16 UTC  

We can forward this information to RFayette to work with regional leaders to get this done (since he hasn't had much to do as SoIA lately)

2018-03-03 03:03:26 UTC  

yes

2018-03-03 03:03:49 UTC  

We also need to get the mistake fixed in the BPC

2018-03-03 03:04:05 UTC  

and I know that Truman has yet to do the budget estimates for Lincoln

2018-03-03 03:04:16 UTC  

as it still has no unified budget yet
