The reasons why Montana's legislature should accept federal Medicaid expansion funds are clear and convincing. Explanations for refusing this money are mere political posturing.
I very much hope that those apposing expansion will reconsider. If they cannot bring themselves to change their minds, their sense of honor should compel them to go give up their state-provided health insurance benefits.
How can our elected representatives accept public services they deny to needy fellow citizens? After all, these legislators are able-bodied and employed.
