Re: Medicaid Redesign Act – LB 472
I am writing you to continue your opposition to LB472.
I am glad you voted Nay during the committee vote. Thank YOU. I urge you to vote nay on any additional action for this bill in this session. Also vote nay on any additional efforts to expand medicaid in Nebraska.
Yes the Federal Government has agreed to pay a portion of it, but there is no firm commitment that the Federal Government will change policy or procedures during changing of the Executive Branch or Congressional makeup.
The reasons to not expand medicaid are numerous.
As I am a limited tax, limited increase government spending.
Medicaid shouldn’t be expanded due to increased costs that the Government will have. There is no equal offset in benefit to the economy. Information actually says that it will make sectors of our economy worse.
Thank YOU for reading & voting nay.
