It’s certainly fair to judge politicians on what they’ve done for the poor. But Medicaid traps the poor in a failing system that leaves them with little to no access to the care they actually need.John Kasich’s self-righteousness is bad enough. His assertion that critics of Medicaid can’t possibly have sincere, principled motives is asinine. But the worst part of all is that the very low-income individuals in whose name Kasich claims to speak will be failed by the policies he has imposed upon them.
