A physician's point of view
I have practiced medicine for over 30 years in Washington state. Every day I see patients who benefit from Medicaid. I also see people without any health insurance. Medicaid may not be as good as it could be, but it's far preferable to not having any health insurance. I have to tailor my management decisions to these financial issues, rather than to the patient's medical condition. We should be expanding and improving Medicaid, not disbanding it!
