LOUISIANA & MEDICAID

Edgar's picture

By Pete Abington

Louisiana is never going to correct its money problems until we get a understanding on Medicaid expenditures. Medicaid already consumes 41% of all the state’s spending. We pay our DHH Secretary Dr. Rebekah Gee $236,000 a year, plus benefits. We have a legislature that represents themselves to be good stewards of our dollars. Surely all those qualified individuals could bring this situation to a head.

Why don’t we get together and figure out just how much money can we afford to spend on Medicaid and properly run our schools, take care of our roads and meet our other financial needs. At that point, Dr. Gee would have to operate her department within the boundaries left. We’d have TOPS money were it handled correctly.
