The Mainstream Media’s Medicaid Lies

To adapt a phrase, there are three kinds of lies: lies, damn lies and stories in the media.

That’s the best way to understand the drumbeat of news articles and opinion pieces (there’s little difference) attacking red states for cleaning up Medicaid, which at the year’s start had a staggering 20 million-plus ineligible recipients.

We’re talking about people who make too much money — often hundreds of thousands of dollars — and don’t need taxpayers’ help.

Yet the media, like the Democratic Party, want as many people on welfare programs as possible, so they’re giving the false impression only helpless families are being kicked to the curb.

It’s as shameless as it is dishonest.

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.
