This commentary argues against Medicaid expansion in North Carolina for 5 reasons: Expansion will reduce access to care for highly vulnerable individuals who are already enrolled in Medicaid; it is unlikely to save lives; it is unaffordable in the long run; its current financing structure encourages fiscal irresponsibility; and it will eliminate more jobs than it creates.
