The idea is to wean the states off federal money and for states to pay their own bills. Many States have balanced budget requirements so they will have to raise revenue to support the increased costs of Medicaid or they can cut the Medicaid roles the ObamaCare grew. These protesters will need to repeat their protests in their state houses and protest their Governor if he cuts Medicaid.
Education needs to follow this pattern as well. States should not be looking to the federal government to fund what are the State’s responsibilities.
Who is your Governor should be more important than who is your President.
