    JB - appears to be joining the ranks of us who have serious questions about this Medicaid expansion. There is a tone of skepticism in this op-ed never before noted. Those of us who have been skeptics all along would feel the same even if the name on this law were not "OBamacare". The history of our lawmakers, and this government we have chosen is the source of doubt. This cynic can't recall ANYTHING the government has done since WWII that merits kudos. So why trust this bunch of yahoos. Just like our personal medical experiences, a second and even third opinion is not just optional, it's essential, even though doctors are certainly more trustworthy than a bunch of lawyers pretending to be statesmen. Maybe the battle over this expansion will be the source of both insight and oversight. It's long overdue!!!
