I agree with Renee that we should encourage the governor to expand Medicaid coverage. What she is talking about is the Affordable Care Act provision for states to offer Medicaid to those earning up to 133% of the poverty level. This expansion is optional for states, but The Grand Canyon Institute and other studies concluded that it would boost Arizona's economy and add jobs. I also feel it is the right thing to do for my fellow Arizonans who are employed and working hard, but who are not fortunate enough to have a job that offers health insurance. Governor Brewer has not yet made a decision, and there are other options, but I hope she decides to opt in for the full 133%. 7 months ago
