More Children Dependent on Medicaid, Is This What Liberals Intended?

When liberals argued for the Great Society in the 1960s, they suggested that their brand of economics would help to alleviate poverty in the U.S. Now, based on data released by the Wall Street Journal last week, liberal economics has led to a greater dependency on centralized economic programs, a consequence conservatives have long warned. In 2000, slightly more than 20% of children in the U.S. relied on Medicaid for health insurance. By 2007, that dependency had climbed to nearly 28%. This increase in dependency is going to lead to increased costs for Medicaid and increased taxes for Americans to pay for it. It seems to me that the purpose of some of these programs has the unintended consequences of creating deferred responsibility and greater dependence.
