National health care advocacy group FamiliesUSA got some fancy economists to crunch the numbers on what would happen to NC’s economy if the federal Medicaid cuts (yes, not the state cuts that have already happened, but the federal cuts that are being talked about right now in DC) are enacted.

Cuts Could Cost North Carolina as Many as 58,650 Jobs and as Much as $6.2 Billion in State Business Activity

    This is a ridiculous argument because neither the states or the Feds can afford this expansion of Medicaid. Much of the recent funding has been borrowed anyway-money we don’t have.
