They.... never.... stop....

On Wednesday, March 2, the House HHS committee exec'ed HB1690 which makes Medicaid Expansion permanent. This is not the same bill as HB1696, which is the bill sponsored by Lachance. This is the Democrat version. Regardless of the committee outcome, this bill will hit the floor of the House on Wednesday, April 9.

What's different about this bill? It puts Medicaid Expansion in place forever. There's no out for the failure of the federal government to launder your tax dollars back to the hospitals and insurance companies. Instead you'll get to continue to pay an obscene amount of federal taxes, and on top of that get stuck with seriously higher insurance premiums or a broad-based tax such as a state income tax.

Contact your rep (or somebody else's, for that matter) and let them know what you think of this.
