After reading the front page article regarding Gov. Nikki Haley's visit to a school on Hilton Head Island, I feel I need to address her comment, "Cool kids don't bully."
My question is, do cool adults bully?
Well, Haley has bullied thousands of people in South Carolina by not participating in Medicaid expansion, by stating, "We will not expand Medicaid on President Obama's watch. We will not expand Medicaid ever."
Hospitals and physician groups endorsed a bigger Medicaid program. Additionally, preventative health care for obesity, smoking, high blood pressure, diabetes would be addressed by expanding the Medicaid program. These health issues lead to expensive health care. Presently we are all paying for the uninsured who are treated at emergency rooms.
Never miss a local story.
