States should refuse the feds’ ‘free money’ that’s creating huge, costly Medicaid rolls

Last year, virtually every Republican governor opted out of the Biden administration’s unemployment bonus, which paid millions of people more than they made by working. Doing so saved taxpayers significant sums, preserved the unemployment system’s integrity and, most important, spurred people back into the workforce.

Now states should make a similar move that will have similar results: Refuse more federal “free money” that discourages work and creates excessive, expensive Medicaid rolls.
