Leid Stories had predicted this problem – and now it’s here.
About 5 million poor people living in 25 states that are not expanding their Medicaid coverage will have no health coverage under the Affordable Care Act, says a report by the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured. Latinos and African Americans are “disproportionately represented” in this group, the report says.
