A story on the Huffington Post exposes what Republicans really are doing in this country, specifically to Medicaid.
How much is too much for someone to be ineligible for Medicaid? In some states, adults earning as little as $5,000 can be kicked off the program.
Medicaid is a federal program designed to provide health coverage to children and adults with limited financial means and disabilities. Different states have different financial qualifications that adults must meet in order to receive coverage.
In most states, adults in a family of three must have a combined income that is less than the federal poverty level, which is currently at $19,090 for a family of three. But in states like Florida, Mississippi and Pennsylvania, adults who qualify must have an income of 26 percent or less of the FPL, according to The Kaiser Commission On Medicaid And The Uninsured. In states like Alabama and Texas, making more than $3,000 can be deemed as making too much to receive subsidized medical coverage.
