Ummm. Yeah and this is why the Business Community is telling the Texas GOP to quit being fucking retarded and expand medicaid so the Business community doesn't get hit with ~$500million in fines per year.Some people don't take bullying well. It's sort of like holding your breath to get your way: You know you're going to have to breath eventually, but you might hit the floor before you give in and do it.
FWIW Texas seems to have billions to squander, so it's all good. The people that are going to shoulder that burden will be the poor, not the businesses (look at how tax burdens are distributed in Texas) and they're the ones out healthcare too, so... fuck 'em, I guess?
The Texas GOP will eventually cave and expand Medicaid. They have no choice in the matter unless they want to piss off major donors.
