Ohio lawmakers are setting an example for the rest of the nation by enacting Medicaid work requirements, which will move thousands of Ohioans out of dependency and usher them back into the workforce. And sadly, ObamaCare’s Medicaid expansion underscores the need for this important, common sense reform.
ObamaCare expansion has unleashed an enrollment explosion in Ohio and elsewhere. When Gov. Kasich unilaterally expanded the program in 2013, he projected that no more than 447,000 able-bodied adults would ever sign up at any point in the future. But enrollment in Ohio’s ObamaCare expansion hit more than 725,000 in 2017.
