Stopping Medicaid Expansion

State Policymakers Must Reject the Broken Promises of Expansion

Non-expansion states need only look to their expansion counterparts to see the trail of destruction that has been left in their wake: shattered enrollments, busted budgets, crowded-out investments, lengthy waiting lists, and more. The costs of Medicaid expansion—both for taxpayers and the most vulnerable—are simply too great to bear.

States must reject the false promises and bait offered to get them to expand Medicaid. The actual experiences of expansion states make it crystal clear that holding the line and resisting a massive expansion of welfare is the most prudent action states can take to protect their budgets, taxpayers, and the truly needy.
