Senate Democratic Leader: ‘More bad news for Iowans needing accessible health care’

A statement from Senate Democratic Leader Janet Petersen on  another round of bad news regarding privatized Medicaid system:

“For too long, Governor Reynolds and Republican legislators have been telling Iowans that the privatized Medicaid experiment was a huge success. That’s nonsense!

“Today’s announcement is more bad news for Iowans needing accessible health care, and it’s more proof that Medicaid privatization is a horrible disaster.  Privatized Medicaid has proven to be bad news for Iowa families, health care providers and taxpayers.

“The best advice for Governor Reynolds and legislative Republicans is this: ‘You’ve dug yourself into a hole. You need  to stop digging.’”
