Hadley Heath Manning is a senior policy analyst and director of health policy at the Independent Women’s Forum. Manning shares her insights on Medicaid, the recent healthcare debate, and common sense ways conservatives can improve their health policy messaging.
Manning explained alternatives to the current incentives for spending at the state level. “Medicaid needed reform before Obamacare. Obamacare made it worse in some sense,” Manning said. “What [the AHCA] would do is limit the Medicaid expansion that now states ‘get money for spending money’ on Medicaid.”
