State Sen. Curtis Hertel Jr. [D]: GOP Medicaid solution hurts the working poor

May 21, 2018

In fact, this legislation will cost a fiscally irresponsible estimated $30 million annually to implement. When the majority of able-bodied Medicaid recipients are already working, why would we spend taxpayer money to punish them if they don’t? Perhaps worst of all, this legislation demonstrates its sponsors are willfully ignorant of the conditions Republican policies have created in Michigan. With a Republican governor, Senate majority, and House majority for almost 10 years now, there have been countless opportunities to help Michigan’s struggling residents. Instead, they’ve demonized the working poor through heartless social experiments, all while investing in corporate welfare with almost no strings attached. (Lansing State Journal)
