It would have made far more sense to completely replace Medicaid with an ACA that reaches all the way to zero income, with the poorest people exempt from copays and deductibles. Instead we have the two systems (ACA and Medicaid) that interface very badly.

Classic lowering of expectations from the center right.
A preference for markets and market forces over public goods and services.
So are you saying your in favor of replacing medicare with a subsidized private health care industry?

Most expensive healthcare, lousy outcomes, shareholder profits assured.

You never answered the question what thousand voters could sway a representative to enact meaningful legislation.

Did you mean a few thousand corporate lobbyists? If so, I would agree. Look no further than the ACA
