Adam Linker speaking on the ACA/Medicaid at a church in Tarboro, NC

Last week Adam Linker and I were invited to another church event in Tarboro. The topic was discussion of the Affordable Care Act and why NC wasn’t expanding Medicaid to 500,000 low income North Carolinians. It was a great meeting, but one thing that struck me was how shocked people were when we explained that because of the action of NC legislators and Governor McCrory, some people in the room wouldn’t be getting health coverage under the Affordable Care Act because they were too poo [2]r. They couldn’t believe that state leaders would do that to communities that need help with affordable health coverage. We’ve had the same reaction in many other places we’ve been speaking at around Eastern NC from Belhaven to New Bern – frank disbelief. Let’s hope legislators get the message.
