Quite a good idea, however, it comes out of the same "pot." Why not just have the federal government take over Medicaid from the states and call it a winning proposition for everyone. Hopefully, the federal government will be more apt to meet its contractual obligations than the many states that simply refuse to reimburse hospitals and physicians for services provided to low-income patients.
