States, including Missouri, can’t afford Medicaid expansion

|

There’s never been a better time for states not to expand Medicaid for able-bodied adults.

As new findings from the Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA) indicate, the Biden administration is luring states with a new federal incentive that only perpetuates dependency and fails to offset the high costs of Medicaid expansion.

With the $1.9 trillion “COVID-19 relief” legislation earlier this year, Congress added to the pressure by offering a bribe to the holdout states that give in to Medicaid expansion. The incentive — or Biden ObamaCare bait, as we’ll call it — would provide a temporary bump in federal funding for states that expand ObamaCare.
