Abstract

In this year’s midterm elections, not only did the Democratic Party retake the US House of Representatives, voters in three red states – Utah, Nebraska and Idaho – approved the expansion of Medicaid via ballot measures. Sarah Scaffidi writes that the votes to expand Medicaid to more than 300,000 people across these states shows that voters value healthcare above party when given a choice, as they elected to expand a program that had been rejected by their own representatives.
