Iowa Senate News Release
For Immediate Release: October 31, 2017
Senate Democratic Leader: ‘More bad news for Iowans needing accessible health care’
A statement from Senate Democratic Leader Janet Petersen on another round of bad news regarding privatized Medicaid system:
“For too long, Governor Reynolds and Republican legislators have been telling Iowans that the privatized Medicaid experiment was a huge success. That’s nonsense!
“Today’s announcement is more bad news for Iowans needing accessible health care, and it’s more proof that Medicaid privatization is a horrible disaster. Privatized Medicaid has proven to be bad news for Iowa families, health care providers and taxpayers.
“The best advice for Governor Reynolds and legislative Republicans is this: ‘You’ve dug yourself into a hole. You need to stop digging.’”
