Op-Ed Considers if States Should Eliminate Medicaid
Some states are considering ending participation in Medicaid as "lawmakers from both parties are staring into the abyss of massive state budget deficits," including in California, Micah Weinberg, a senior research fellow at the New America Foundation's Health Policy Program, writes in a Sacramento Bee opinion piece. Weinberg writes that "both states and federal government are going to have to get real about the fact that fulfilling our obligation to provide for those in need is going to require restoring revenues," adding that "there is no better time for sane behavior."
