Supporters of Medicaid Expansion, including Governor Matt Mead, express an unwavering belief that the federal government will actually fund this entitlement as promised.

Obamacare’s supporters seem to believe that if you give patients insurance, doctors will treat them. But greater access to health insurance doesn’t mean greater access to healthcare.
