Mary Mayhew on Health Care
Absolutely opposed to Medicaid expansion
Mayhew has adamantly opposed efforts to expand Medicaid, which she said will only increase the dependency of able-bodied adults on government entitlement programs, drain the state budget, and require cuts in services for the elderly and disabled.
Medicaid expansion "creates a golden circle around able-bodied adults," Mayhew said.
Helping able-bodied adults return to the workforce should be the priority, which will leave more resources for the elderly and disabled, she said.
