KIDS AND MALARKEY

KIDS AND MEDICAID
Republican governors spurn federal funds for Medicaid expansion — they care deeply for you until you’re born; thereafter, not so much — yet it turns out, as the Times reports, “Giving [children] health coverage may boost their future earnings for decades. And the taxes they pay on those higher incomes may help pay the government back for some of its investment. The study used newly available tax records measured over decades to examine the effects of providing Medicaid insurance to children. . . . People who had been eligible for Medicaid as children, as a group, earned higher wages and paid higher federal taxes than their peers . . . ”
KIDS AND CLIMATE CHANGE
Oh, by the way? This clip from Friday’s NBC Nightly News makes it clear Republican climate deniers are making life way more difficult for our kids and theirs.
