Gee, ya think?
Winston-Salem Journal reports on the White House’s latest proposal to states–including North Carolina—who did not expand Medicaid under Obamacare—-expand Medicaid now and you get the same deal as the other states who did so back in 2014.
First let’s look at this practically, as stated by Rep. Donny Lambert, R-Forsyth:
“It will be hard to move much legislation that is so significant and still has longer-term funding liabilities to the state,” Lambeth said. “With reform plans now in the works, it is a fair question and adds to our current evaluation of several options that might make sense for North Carolina.”
There is one other thing, though–let’s see…oh yeah….it’s an election year.
