Tax Credits & Expanded Medicaid

Dear Editor

Perhaps a deal can be made with the legislature in allowing the oil companies to have their 200 million dollars in tax credits now in exchange for the legislature allowing the expanded Medicaid to be put in. This would be a simple trade of this for that. The legislature, oil companies, rich and powerful in the lower 48 who own the stocks of these oil companies want their 200 hundred million dollars in tax credits right now without any further delay. The working poor who could use the expanded Medicaid right now so that they can get some needed medical attention would like this deal to go through as well.

It would be a win win situation for the rich, oil companies, legislature, governor and the working poor. Hopefully the state government will work together so everyone can get what they need.
