Expand Medicaid

The fight has begun on whether South Carolina should expand its Medicaid program as allowed under Obamacare.  Last week a report produced by the University of South Carolina Moore School of Business found that from 2014 to 2020 the state would experience a $9 million net increase in revenue if it expands Medicaid for citizens up to 138% of the federal poverty level.   The increase in revenue comes from new workers generated by the expansion paying more income tax than the cost of implementation of the program.
