Refusing Medicaid expansion is the most important decision Gov. Pat McCrory can make to secure a bright financial future for North Carolina. A major provision of Obamacare, Medicaid expansion would cost North Carolina families another $3.1 billion over the next decade.
Medicaid in North Carolina already covers 1.8 million people and receives a taxpayer contribution of $10.2 billion. After running $100 million deficits in the recent past, the state finally has Medicaid spending under control and under budget thanks to Gov. McCrory’s refusal to expand the program.
Obamacare advocates view Medicaid’s deficit reduction as an opportunity to promote expansion and increase the burden of Obamacare on taxpayers. They figure if it’s fixed, break it.
Urge Gov. McCrory to expand care, not government, and stay the fiscally responsible course by refusing Medicaid expansion. North Carolina families can’t afford it.
