Scott Statement on Virginia Medicaid Expansion

May 30, 2018
Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Bobby Scott (VA-03) issued the following statement after the Virginia General Assembly passed legislation to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act:

“I am very pleased to see Republicans and Democrats come together to finally expand Medicaid. The Medicaid expansion means 400,000 Virginians will now no longer have to live without the security of health insurance. Additionally, the expansion simply makes good economic sense, as research has shown that Virginians with insurance have been paying more for coverage because of the lack of expansion. By expanding Medicaid, the budget will also bring over 3 billion federal dollars back to the Commonwealth. This expansion is years overdue, and I am thrilled that Virginia Republicans finally stopped playing politics with people’s health care.”
