Fox News covers FGA’s ObamaCare expansion report

og-fn-foxnewsFox News covered our new report on ObamaCare expansion’s enrollment crisis. Here’s a snippet:

Adult enrollment in ObamaCare’s Medicaid expansion has more than doubled expectations in states across the country — pointing to ballooning costs that threaten budget dollars for priorities like education and infrastructure, according to a report released Wednesday by The Foundation for Government Accountability.

Newly obtained data from 24 of the 29 states with Medicaid expansions show at least 11.5 million able-bodied adults have enrolled. The FGA says adult enrollment for all these states exceeds projections, by an average of 110 percent. Some states have signed up more than four times as many adults as they expected would enroll.

“A lot of folks on the left will say that this is a huge sign of success — look at all of these people who need coverage and help,” Nicholas Horton, senior research fellow at FGA and co-author of the report, told FoxNews.com. “My response is that it is not success when you have able-bodied adults who are being trapped in welfare and reducing their incentive to work.”
