Medicaid expansion will cost the Iowa taxpayer more than it needs to

Currently Iowa has 400,000 people enrolled in Medicaid.  The Fiscal Year 14 estimate is that this will cost $ 1.5 billion.  This is $88.5 million more than last year.  Medicaid costs grow every year regardless if expansion is approved or not.  Since 2000, Medicaid enrollment is up 88 percent and Medicaid expenditures are up 226 percent. With or without Obamacare, the cost of Medicaid is going up.
