Let me think about this. Medicaid expansion in AZ will increase employment in the medical fields. The hospitals in AZ will be paid thru Medicaid for more of their low income patients. Following our current laws, the hospitals must treat all patients, whether they can pay or not. More low income residents will be able to receive preventive medical care. Voting in the Medicaid expansion will mean AZ receives $8B total from the federal government, covering AZ's additional Medicaid costs.
Sounds like it's a good idea to vote for medicaid expansion. In fact, I don't see why any logical person would vote against it.
