Progress Michigan Executive Director on Medicaid Expansion

“Today approximately 400,000 uninsured Michiganders can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that they will have healthcare options soon,” said Lonnie Scottexecutive director of Progress Michigan. “While being one step closer to Medicaid expansion is cause for celebration, Governor Rick Snyder and Senate Republicans don’t even deserve a pat on the back. They deserve no credit for finally getting around to doing the job they were elected to do after months of dragging their feet. In fact, their delay may cost Michigan upwards of $7 million per day if implementation doesn’t happen before Jan. 1. It is a great day for Michigan’s working families, but it will be an even better one when we have true leaders in the governor’s office and state Senate.”
