Utah must accept full Medicaid Expansion IMMEDIATELY. Since January 1, 2014 Utahans have been paying for Expansion. But inexplicably, the Governor and the Legislature have turned back more than $2 billion dollars of Utah’s share of Expansion.
Money that could have helped more than 120,000 low-income Utah families get lifesaving medical care! And imagine all the jobs that would have created in our state! Utah has paid for full Medicaid Expansion--but Utah Republican politicians are playing silly political games with the lives of these families! Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Nevada, even Montana have taken these funds. But Utah refuses!
I continue to pester officials, at every opportunity (sometimes inappropriately), in state government to accept Utah's full share of Medicaid expansion.I will continue to let our officials know our citizens want full Medicaid Expansion!
