The approach should be to improve the lives of low income people so they can choose and pay for their own health care needs.

The republicans in Congress need PR help.

If 46.7 percent under age of 65 that are on Medicaid are white and 45.3 percent under age of 65 on Medicaid are black in the state of South Carolina - it seems burden to the state is pretty much equal among the races. So what's his point? other than he has a lot of poor people in his state. What has Graham done to address the poverty in his state?

Graham's job is not to set economic policy in SC...

That would be Mark Sanford - I guess we know what he is preoccupied with.

That's why Lindsey Graham's got to stop them. He's the Great White Hope.

His point is the same old point that conservative Republicans always fall back on when it comes to social programs, raise the specter of shiftless black folks sucking off the public teat. And the negroes on another thread keep wondering why African Americans don't flock to the Republican Party.
