Learn more about Medicaid
When the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) was enacted in 2010 it required all states to expand their Medicaid programs to include people with incomes slightly higher than those allowed under traditional Medicaid, as well as groups, like childless adults, that had not previously been covered. In 2012 the Supreme Court ruled that forcing States to expand their Medicaid coverage was unconstitutional. Since then 22 states have expanded their coverage and more than 35 have opted not to do so. Proponents of the expansion argue that it will lower healthcare costs for everyone by reducing the number of Americans without health insurance. Opponents argue that states should be allowed to run their own Medicaid programs without the intervention of the federal government. See recent Medicaid news

No, but give incentives for those states that do. 3 years ago from a Green in Mishawaka, IN
A certain percentage of government healthcare should go into a reserve for the poor, but forced Medicaid could strain already unbalanced state budgets. 3 years ago from a Green in Union City, GA
Yes, and the government should provide us with all our needs, and we will only pay for luxuries. 3 years ago from a Green in Port St. Lucie, FL
Yes, but states are the laboratories of democracy. Let them try out other approaches. But they must participate. 3 years ago from a Green in Overland, MO
Honestly, I don't put a lot of trust into Medicaid, nor any government run healthcare program.
Healing of other humans should not be something that requires non-medical personnel regulation. 3 years ago from a Green in Clinton, MO
States that do not expand Medicaid should continue to be penalized until their citizens elect leaders that make decisions based on facts rather than dogma. 3 years ago from a Green in San Antonio, TX
We should solve this whole situation through single-payer implementation. 3 years ago from a Green in Harrisburg, PA
