If you understand how giving giving federal tax dollars to auto manufacturers who can’t survive with more federal tax dollars hurts both the car companies, their employees, and taxpayers, then you may doubt the wisdom in throwing more borrowed federal money at states’ busted Medicaid budgets.
How about $15.2 billion?
Of course, Kentucky’s share is only $205 million, which is about half what really-big-government states New York and Massachusetts are getting on a per capita basis. But still, this only encourages us to tax and spend increasingly larger amounts of money on entitlements. Probably not the best plan when we already overspend on this every year.
When will we learn? Apparently, not soon.
