As the coal fields shut down in Southenr WV,poverty will explode.These numbers are about 1/2 of what will occur in WV. OV steel is gone also;never to return.Most of the retail folks at Highlands will qualify going forward.It is probable 25% of the state will be on Medicaid with another 50%+ on Medicare.WV is a "welfare state."

dyinggov asked -"rover, Billions of "free" bucks! Where do federal taxes come from? DC....."

The citizens of the states pay federal taxes. The federal government then dispenses money gathered back to the states for various programs including 'medicaid'. So....any state saying, 'Nah, we conservative Republicans and won't accept that 100 percent cost of medicaid money'.....well that money goes out to those states who will accept it. Guess what? The money paid in taxes by the Red States rejecting medicaid....just goes to the other states. Thanks a lot, stupes! Yeah, yeah, I know..the Feds might change the rules downrange. So what, just 'opt out' then citing federal failure to adhere to the promised program. Point is..WV is smart enough to see this is a square deal and is jumping in, like the other progressive states.

oldidiot, the USA is NOT the richest country in the world per capita, 5 other countries have a higher average income than America.

South Africa has no Universal Health care.
