Medicaid in Colorado.
The Rocky has a nice discussion of the Medicaid program (Colorado's program is a bare bones one by national standards), which provides care to the poor, the disabled and the elderly with the help of federal matching funds, in Colorado. It takes up 22% of the state general fund budget and Colorado has been working hard to slash provider payments, but it is a very hard program to cut.
