Letter: Most involved support Medicaid expansion, so should Utah
First Published Jan 11 2014 01:01 am • Last Updated Jan 12 2014 10:02 am
The statements made by our Utah legislators regarding the acceptance of federal Medicaid money have to take a backseat to the logical comments of doctors, nursing groups, church groups and even members of the insurance community.
Utahns’ federal taxes help pay for Medicaid programs. It is time for our governor and legislators to "bite the bullet" as other red states have done and accept the federal money and expand Medicaid.
