It's official, Utah-elected state officials can no longer call themselves fiscally responsible.
To pay for the Rio Grande operation, they are begging Trump for $70 million federal dollars in a Medicaid waiver. It could take years to get an answer back from DC. AND under their scenario, Utah must match with $30 million to get the $70 million in DC cash.
OR, we could just take Utah's share of full Medicaid Expansion TOMORROW and Utah low-income earners could receive $677, 986,874 in health care! Utah would pay 10% or $68 million.
Query, Which plan is fiscally responsible?
Plan A Utah gets $100 million, Utah pays $30 million
Plan B Utah gets $677 million, Utah pays $68 million
Call rejection of Medicaid whatever you like--but the GOP financing plan is NOT fiscally responsible for Utah's beleaguered taxpayers!
A message from a strong fiscal conservative Democratic progressive.
