A Timely Contribution

With God's Appointed Instrument and the Republicans in Congress sharpening their knives for the Medicaid program, my friend Fouad Pervez and his colleague Cindy Mann at the Georgetown University Health Policy Institute tell us some of the reasons why you, your Governor and your state legislators should stand up and defend it -- yup, even if they're Republicans.
