Veteran NC political observer: Medicaid opt-out bill is wrong

Long-time North Carolina political observer and TV host, Tom Campbell [1] has a fine column in the Winston-Salem Journal [2]today on the folly of the health care opt-out legislation that’s receiving final approval at this hour in the House.

Here is the excellent conclusion:

“Senate Bill 4 is wrong on many levels. It was arbitrary, didn’t include all the needed stakeholders, was designed and passed without sufficient discussion and leaves far too many questions unanswered. North Carolinians gave legislative control to Republicans who promised honest, transparent and more accountable government. The Senate hasn’t lived up to that promise with Senate Bill 4. We deserve better.”
