Statement: Medicaid Expansion Study
February 19, 2019
Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statement in regard to the study conducted by the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty and The Center for Research On the Wisconsin Economy.
“The new research shows the expansion of government run and controlled health care isn’t good for Wisconsin. There’s a proven cost to families who have private insurance coverage with healthcare costs increasing more in states that expanded Medicaid.
“Supporters of Medicaid expansion often point to so-called free money from the federal government without truly understanding the costs to consumers. This study confirms Wisconsin found the right balance. I want to thank the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty and The Center for Research On the Wisconsin Economy for conducting the important study.”
