H 776 - Medicaid Simplification (that isn't)

Idaho Eagle Forum urges a NO vote on H0776 - Medicaid Simplification.


This legislation is part of a package of changes to support the socialist program of integration of workforce development, the schools and health care within the schools and directed by the schools. 


The Honorable Samuel Rohrer of the Pennsylvania State House of Representatives said of this program:


“We are witnessing today what could be described as the grandest expansion of the Nanny State (Socialism) in the history of America.  And I believe this expansion to be one of the most diabolical, intricate, and subversive schemes to plague the landscape of American public policy.  

This atrocity is “The Medicalization of the Schools”.  From a purely educational viewpoint it could be termed “The Destruction of the American Educational System”.  From a health-care perspective, it could be viewed as “The Subversion of the World’s Finest System of Health Care”.  From a societal vantage point, it could be described as “The Subduing of the American Family”.  However, because of the integration of business and labor it could also just as accurately be dubbed, “The Collectivization of American Capitalism”. And analyzed from a public policy perspective, it could be called “The Demise of Representative Government”


  • H0776 splits the Medicaid program into three different programs serving three different populations.  This split will explode administrative costs.


  • Children and working age parents are being put into a separate group in support of the plan to implement a socialist program of integration of workforce development and medical care into the school system with the school system being the center of control.


  • This legislation gives the Director of Health & Welfare the power to expand the program by expanding the categories of people covered.  The Director of Health and Welfare has a VESTED INTEREST in program expansion and this legislation gives him a blank check to do it. 


  • This program removes from the legislature oversight power to control the program and control spending on the program.
