The Virginia General Assembly is currently in the heat of the Medicaid expansion debate. While the Republican-controlled House of Delegates and Senate both rejected Medicaid expansion, Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe made the issue a central campaign pledge. With the debate only heating up, The Third Rail thought this would be the right time for some thoughtful analysis to break through the partisan rhetoric.
Check out Benjamin Paul’s column supporting expansion, which offers some background information, and Carter Blackwell’s case against the reforms.
We encourage your insightful comments and hope these articles provide a fruitful forum for debate. If you have any questions or would like to write an article for the The Third Rail, please contact Senior Online Editor Joseph Liss at firstname.lastname@example.org.
