Biden financial bill expands Medicaid - a + for WI - but Vos...

...has long been #never. 

His phrase.

The history:

On Medicaid expansion, Robin Vos and Republican fake rationality refuseniks have consistently said 'no way, never' - even though Wisconsin taxpayers have to make up the lost hundreds of millions of dollars through state taxes.

But will Vos and the rest of his counterfeit conservative caucus continue their war on public health, the poor and the state treasury now that Biden's economic recovery bill specifically adds so much new Medicaid funding that states like Wisconsin will actually make money if they take the newly-available funding?

Medicaid expansion. Twelve states have still refused to accept the ACA’s expansion of Medicaid, leaving huge numbers of poor citizens without health coverage. The ARP boosts the federal contribution to Medicaid so that holdout states will actually make money if they accept the expansion.

I'm betting that Vos's answer will remain #never, because in the little state capitol world where he rules, ideology is everything and the rest is #never:



On Medicaid expansion & compromise with Evers, Vos is #never.
