Reason.com has a good article on Medicaid and how Obamacare made an already complicated and fragile program even more so.
Two key take-aways from this article:
1) The vast majority of the “newly insured” due to Obamacare actually got coverage under Medicaid.
2) Medicaid recipients get lousy outcomes in comparison to those with private insurance or even the uninsured.
“Liberals claim that repealing ObamaCare will kill people. But at least as far as ObamaCare’s Medicaid component is concerned, the opposite might in fact be closer to the truth.”
Definitely worth the read.
