Ginger Lang Marshall Vela writes on Facebook: "How could the Legislators reject the Medicaid expansion? It is a win-win for the State. Of course the children, the poor, and the elderly who will suffer are of little or no consequence to them, so I guess that is the answer. It will matter though if one of those lawmakers has to place a loved one in long-term care and finds they are unable to do so. Medicaid pays for this, not Medicare, and I would not be surprised if most of those people are not aware of this. They had better be prepared to stay home and take care of a totally disabled loved one... Their decision is so sad and incomprehensible to me."
