Medicaid Expansion Statement from President Swift

Michigan State AFL-CIO President Karla Swift on the Passage of Medicaid Expansion

Medicaid expansion is a victory for over 400,000 of Michigan’s most vulnerable families, but the way in which it was passed was plagued with political gamesmanship and months of delays. Today’s vote made it clear that the Tea Party controls some Lansing politicians. While they were busy playing games and negotiating back room deals, the lives of children, veterans, and the working poor were on the line. We urge our representatives in the House to pass the revised bill as soon as possible.  Every second counts in the lives of Michigan’s most vulnerable citizens.
