Medicaid Expansion is Driving Hospital Capacity to the Brink

As I scrolled through Twitter Monday morning, a news headline caught my attention: “Southern Colorado Hospitals Reach ICU Bed Capacity As COVID Hospitalizations Continue To Rise.”

Indeed, from New York to New Mexico, the ability of hospitals to house additional COVID-19 patients across the country is a major concern.

Unfortunately, this is less a feature of the COVID-19 pandemic, and more a symptom of hospital bed capacity that has diminished quietly over the past two decades.

At FGA, we don’t just talk about changing policy—we make it happen.

By partnering with FGA through a gift, you can create more policy change that returns America to a country where entrepreneurship thrives, personal responsibility is rewarded, and paychecks replace welfare checks.
