stdClass Object ( [created_time] => 2019-05-26T15:21:27+0000 [message] => Business leaders see the sense in expanding Medicaid. Why can’t Legislative Republicans? As the article says, expanding Medicaid would create jobs, decrease the cost of health care, and boost consumer spending. It would also benefit business in these ways: “• Help employers who don’t provide medical benefits: For employers with less than 50 employees who are not required to provide medical benefits under ACA, they could see their employees benefit from this expansion. • Improve employee performance: In Ohio, 84% of employed enrollees said that Medicaid expansion helped make working easier. With less stress from untreated health conditions and unpaid medical bills, employees are more productive and less prone to missing days of work.” #ExpandMedicaidNow #OurCarolinaPromise [id] => 565522970187681_2707850569288233 )
