Extra Federal Support for Medicaid
07/15/2010 | 386 Requests *
A new policy brief examines the ramifications of extending the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act on Medicaid. Without the extension states may have to take drastic measures to balance state budgets. Proponents of the extension say it is essential to support the safety net and that it stimulates economic growth. Others argue the extension should only be approved if the additional federal spending is fully offset by federal budget cuts or increased federal revenues.
