Medicaid: Get with funding program or go home

By: Magnolia Tribune - June 26, 2008

The Clarion-Ledger Editorial, 6/26/8

Two years of partisan bickering is more than enough regarding Medicaid funding.

Mississippi taxpayers have underwritten the costs of a 2008 special session to contain a political drama that’s been playing for two years. That absolutely is enough.

When lawmakers return today to resume the special session battle over how to fund the state’s current $90 million Medicaid deficit, they will be continuing a debate that’s been going on through two regular legislative sessions and now a continuing special session.

That’s enough. Hear? Repeat: Enough! It’s time for the Legislature to get with funding the Medicaid program or go home.
