The math is done and it shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone – NC is losing $4.9 million per day since January 1, 2014 because Governor McCrory and the NC General Assembly refused to expand Medicaid.  This is money  NC taxpayers paid in federal taxes that is now headed to states like Arizona, New York, Arkansas and Nevada where conservative legislators and governors chose to expand coverage for their poorest citizens.  You can embed the counter below on your own page by going here [1].
