    "coverage" they can't afford the copays to actually use when they need it.

    That adds massively to health care costs, since they won't be going to the MD with their problems in a timely manner.

    The really disgusting part of this scam, though, is that low income workers who will qualify for this will usually have few assets and will fall into poverty as soon as they suffer a serious injury or illness.

    They get cancer, private insurance pays for the Dx.  Then they lose their job or cut hours way back because they're sick, and Medicaid picks up all the serious costs.

    income gains to the top 1% from 2009 to 2011 were 121% of all income increases. How did that happen? Incomes to the bottom 99% fell by 0.4%
