Medicaid expansion is a cornerstone of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and the president’s 20 delays/changes are a clear warning his legacy legislation is unworkable as it was written four years ago. However, Gov. McAuliffe and advocates for expanding Medicaid are ignoring the president’s advice. Unfortunately, as the evidence piles up they continue to make false claims trying to persuade Virginians that becoming more dependent on the federal government is in their best interests.

An example of this evidence is the claim that Virginia has a legal off-ramp from expansion if the federal government reneges on its promise to pay for the expanded population. First of all, President Obama’s Health and Human Services Department has yet to allow disenrollment. Why would they? They argue extensive enrollment into Medicaid is key to the success of the ACA.
