Lawmaker Reacts To Medicaid Explosion

(Springfield, IL) — Illinois was supposed to see no more than 300-thousand people enroll in the state’s expanded Medicaid program. But one lawmaker says it’s not surprising that more than 600-thousand people have signed on to the system so far. State Senator Bill Brady says Illinois needs to make sure only those who need state benefits are getting them. But the Republican says the big picture solution is to create new jobs so people can buy their own healthcare.
