Democrats Refuse to Join Medicaid Committee

In Washington's newly discovered spirit of bipartanship, Senate and House Democrats are refusing to participate on an advisory Medicaid Committee. The purpose of the committee is to recommend ways to modernize Medicaid so that the program can provide high-quality health care in a financially sustainable way. The Democrats object to being nonvoting members (same as Republicans) and to finding ways to cut Medicaid spending. For further information, see here, here, and here.
