Health Policy in New Mexico

Last Friday, at the invitation of the Rio Grande Foundation, I spoke to state legislators in New Mexico about Gov. Richardson’s proposal to expand Medicaid.  In brief, I argued that Richardson’s proposal would trap more New Mexicans in low-wage jobs, make private-sector health care more expensive, and purchase little health for the money spent.

The Rio Grande Foundation just posted my powerpoint presentation on their website. (Let me know if it loses something without narration.)
