There is no age limit. Medicaid picks up the cost of skilled nursing after the 100 day limit on care provided by Medicare runs out, for patients with limited or no resources. Medicaid can also pick up some of the out of pocket expenses, including premiums, again, for medicare recipients with limited incomes. Prescriptions and other services provided by both are first paid by Medicare up to applicable limits, and then by Medicaid up to the state limit.

Armen: According to the Garden City Telegram, Representative Alford commented that black people were “users” and responded worst to the drugs because of their “character makeup” and “genetics.”

It appears that Alford concluded that the "black people" are somehow inferior to other races because of some perceived predisposition to abusing drugs, and that that this perceived predisposition justifies current drug policy.

The fact that he alluded that African Americans are somehow inferior to others meets the definition of an act of "racism" on his part. A racist is: "a person who shows or feels discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or who believes that a particular race is superior to another." [Source: English Oxford Dictionary]

Given a fair reading of the terms "racism" and "racist," it appears that Representative Alford fits within the definition of "racist."

Yes, I watched it, and it is not the first time that the NRA presented misleading material, in the interest of making firearms available to "everyone" including the mentally ill.

Of course I watched it. It is fairly typical NRA propaganda entitled "everyone gets a gun"

Bob: look at what happened to the US violent crime rate starting in the years following the passage of the Brady Bill in 1992. Correlation is not causation, but it can be evidence.

A universal background check requirement would not have prevented him from having that firearm.
