Friday Roundtable: Vogt "Takes Issue" With The Idea That Billion-Plus Cut To Health Care Will Harm Health Care

Posted By on Fri, Apr 9, 2010 at 5:39 PM

Our new District 30 state representative, Republican Ted Vogt, makes his first appearance on the Friday Roundtable alongside Democratic Rep. Phil Lopes, who is wrapping up his legislative career this year.

Vogt makes some interesting comments about the impact of budget and tax cuts. For example, he "takes issue" with the idea that the loss of more than $1.5 billion in state and federal funds will damage hospitals and other parts of the health-care industry in Arizona, despite the evidence—such as a report from ASU economists—to the contrary. If there are no negative consequences for reducing funding, then why do Republicans say they had to make tough choices?

Watch it after the jump.
