Aldona Wos [1]In a scathing editorial this morning [2], the News and Observer called Pat McCrory’s DHHS Secretary Aldona Wos to account for her ignorance on basic decisions about Medicaid, a program she seeks to radically change through privatization. ¬†Referring to Wos’ recent claim that the Commissioner of Insurance was responsible for rejecting billions of dollars in federal money for extending Medicaid, the N+O reminded the Secretary that the General Assembly and McCrory had actually rejected the federal money, noting that this action was: “an ideological and political stance, and it was a horrible decision.” ¬†The main point:

Wos needs to be fully informed as to the state of Medicaid before she takes her show on the road, the intention of the show being to get community input, including comment from doctors, as to how the state can best deliver care.
