Anybody but Noem: why not Medicaid for all?

Kristi Noem and South Dakota’s teabagger congressional delegation are doing diddly squat to fund the Indian Health Service or the Veterans Administration working at cross-purposes with Republican Governor Daugaard. It's the same in Wyoming. But, it's not just red states holding up universal health care.

Until Democrats regain the US Senate nothing will change.

But you know what?

I like the idea of rolling the funding for Tricare, Medicare, the IHS and the VA together then offering Medicaid for all by increasing the estate tax, raising taxes on tobacco and adopting a carbon tax. Reproductive freedoms should be included unconditionally just like the military does under Tricare.
