Representative Burch discusses the medicaid waiver in the courier journal

I have been hearing from many that eligible people who are able to work, but don’t, should lose their Medicaid coverage. Some folks even quote St. Paul: “Those who don’t work should not eat.”

Those words do not reflect Christ, however, who said, “Bring me the hungry and I will feed them.” Christ also healed the sick, and that is exactly what Medicaid does.
