Republican for NC Medicaid Expansion

Posted By Adam Searing On January 14, 2013 @ 1:41 pm In Uncategorized | Comments Disabled

In NC Policywatch’s Sarah Ovaska’s continuing series [1] of profiles of new legislators in the NC General Assembly, this response to a question about whether the legislature should enact the ACA’s Medicaid expansion from Rep. Jim Fulghum (R-Raleigh):

Medicaid expansion? “It has to happen. There will be a way to make that happen. I despair at seeing people in a situation where they’re in pain” without means to pay for medical treatment. “We need to know how much the state obligation is.”

Fulghum is a neurosurgeon, has seen patients all his life, and thus has plenty of first-hand experience at what it will take to help our crazy health system get on the right track.
