Medicaid Expansion Passes N.C. Senate

Medicaid Expansion Passes N.C. Senate

Last week, the North Carolina Senate voted to expand Medicaid to North Carolinians who are currently without health care coverage.

With a 44-2 vote, the bipartisan-backed measure has moved forward amid a decade long standstill that has left more than half a million North Carolinians without access to affordable health care.

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper and Democrats never ceased to beat the drum for Medicaid expansion. After a decade of Democrats advocating for the protections of uninsured North Carolinians, Republicans are rightfully recognizing how critical access to affordable care is for the health and well-being of our state. 

It’s now up to House Republicans whether they will put politics aside and join in a bipartisan effort to ensure hundreds of thousands of North Carolinians can finally receive the care they need.
