Just another GOP Governor talking point: “Medicaid is broken”

Looks like a memo came down to GOP Governors (including NC Governor Pat McCrory) who don’t want to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act:  Just say “Medicaid is broken” again and again and again.  In NC, Medicaid has the lowest growth rate in the US and has helped do things like make NC’s infant mortality rate drop at one of the biggest rates in the nation.  But don’t let those pesky facts get in the way of a good talking point!
