Ron Johnson: Medicaid expansion may be fueling opioid crisis

Sen. Johnson charged Thursday that Medicaid expansion under Obamacare is fueling the opioid crisis in America. In a letter sent Thursday to Health & Human Services, Johnson said he used open-source databases and “shockingly identified 261 people who had been convicted of exploiting Medicaid to obtain opioids, which were often resold at enormous profit.” > Washington Examiner

  1. That is probably the most ignorant thing I’ve heard from Rojo in quite some time. Addicts will get their drugs from any available source. Medicaid should be expanded to help addiction recovery, not cut. Many people who are Not addicts need Medicaid.
