What will the this "policy" decision really do? This is one of those times that I wish I had "data" at my fingertips and could explore the geographic and age distribution of our population of medicaid recipients. Someone can point me to a study and when they do I suggest they send a copy to each legislator and ask for verified proof that they have read it.
Here are my a priori suspicions -
- The major incidence will fall on children and older people.
- The children will be living in urban areas primarily.
- The older people will live the rural areas of the state, small towns, etc.
- The GOP thinks this will make it more likely they can blame ACA, aka ObamaCare for the pain.
