Uriah: I am disabled. I only get around $900/month no food assistance and have to pay medicare premiums. That leaves me wit h$755/month. My question is this why is it that people who do not work get Medicaid and do not have to pay a dime but me (I worked for as long as my busted up body would allow), people like me and retired people have to pay for our medical insurance? Why should it not be the other way around?
