Should Medicaid be expanded in Pennsylvania? Let us know

Sean Adkins wrote about how former Gov. Ed Rendell is calling for an expansion of Medicaid — which Gov. Tom Corbett has decided not to pursue for now.

“I have said publicly that I hope he reconsiders,” Rendell said. “How would you feel watching family members wasting away because they didn’t have access to medical care? And this is in the richest country in the world. We can’t let that scenario happen. It’s too important for the roughly 600,000 Pennsylvanians without insurance.”

Corbett has said he is concerned about the cost to the state.

  2. The medical insurance industry is destroying American Healthcare. Expanding medicaid to more low income families and individuals can be acheived and paid for by offering medicaid to premium paying individuals and families as a public insurance option. By keeping the premiums competitive and working in a state run non-profit model, the program could eventually pay for itself and begin to drive down inflated for profit insurance premiums. The program could eventually grow to create revenue for the State if run properly.
