Virginia U.S. Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine along with Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe held a media conference not only to mark the 50th anniversary of Medicaid but to urge Republican legislatures and governors throughout the country to expand Medicaid immediately.
McAuliffe says he is the “ultimate optimist on these type of things.”
Nineteen states have still refused to expand Medicaid despite its track record of success in helping low-income families receive quality, affordable healthcare. Failure by these 19 states to expand Medicaid could deprive more than four million Americans from receiving this affordable healthcare in 2016 they all said.
