During the debate on an abortion bill on Tuesday, newly elected Representative Katie Hobbs pointed out the irony of all the talk about care for minority children and their mothers when many of these same legislators support major cuts in our state’s Medicaid program, AHCCCS.
I guess the Republicans took this as a challenge. Late last night, the Senate Appropriations Committee voted to abolish the AHCCCS program. Not cut. Not trim. Abolish.
Republican press release blaming ObamaCare, Janet Napolitano and Kyrsten Sinema will be out later today, no doubt.
