Medicaid expansion is a bad deal for North Carolina

As the Biden administration tries to sidestep states refusing to expand Medicaid, all eyes are on North Carolina. It is one of only 12 states that have held out for a decade—and for good reason.

Medicaid expansion has proven to be a disaster in every state it has been implemented. It has ballooned program enrollment, busted state budgets, and overrun hospitals at the expense of the most vulnerable among us. More than 20,000 truly needy Americans have died on Medicaid waiting lists in states which have expanded Medicaid.
