“The Graham-Cassidy bill would significantly reduce funding to states over the long term, particularly for states that have already expanded Medicaid,” said Caroline Pearson, senior vice president at Avalere Health, a health-policy consulting firm. Given this, how can Gov. Doug Ducey support Graham-Cassidy? He is agreeing to take money from Arizona and give it to states that didn't have the responsibility or morality to accept the Medicaid expansion. He should rescind his support of this bill and communicate that to Sens. Flake and McCain.
