The Idaho Freedom Foundation Friday urged lawmakers to reject Medicaid expansion and instead consider alternatives to save taxpayer money and improve care. The foundation provided Senate and House Health and Welfare committees with information packets that contradict the argument that the state will save money and improve health care through expansion. The information packets were provided because Idaho Freedom Foundation, nor other groups or individuals opposed to expansion, were expected to be allowed to testify in committee Friday morning/Wayne Hoffman, Idaho Freedom Foundation.

DFO: I personally like Wayne Hoffman. I've had coffee with him in the past. And enjoyed the conversation. I also appreciates the stands he takes on issues. I know that I'll be correct if I take the opposite stand. In this way, he provides a valuable service to us at Huckleberries Online.
Question: Do you support Medicaid expansion for Idaho?
