Paul Krugman and the cost of Medicaid expansion to New Mexico

Once the election is over, Medicaid expansion and whether New Mexico should accept the federal government’s bribe, er, “support” to massively expand Medicaid. Of course, the results of the election could have an impact on whether New Mexico legislators are inclined to follow the diktats of ObamaCare and whether the president and Congress intend to keep the program in place.

John Goodman of the National Center for Policy Analysis discusses New York Times columnist Paul Krugman and his clueless statements/outright lies on Medicaid and health care in general.

In a separate brief, the Heritage Foundation outlines potential scenarios under the new health care law and how much it is likely to cost taxpayers at the federal level and in the individual states. According to the analysis, New Mexico will spend at least $330 million more on Medicaid under ObamaCare from 2014-2022.
