Carol Martin: Ohio trumps N.C.

November 1, 2013 

Even Ohio has managed to take advantage of Medicaid expansion for its 275,000 eligible residents. North Carolina has 500,000 residents eligible for federally funded Medicaid expansion at no cost to the state for three years. That uninformed legislators in Raleigh have cut off their noses to spite our 500,000 faces is reprehensible to say the least. Perhaps Gov. Pat McCrory – who used to be a great Charlotte mayor, by the way – can be brave enough to take a page out of Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s book.
