Howard Dean's Dirty Little Secret on Medicaid?
Appearing on Meet the Press yesterday, former Vermont Governor Howard Dean was asked about the possibility that, given the Supreme Court’s ruling on Obamacare last Thursday, states could choose to opt out of the law’s new Medicaid expansion. He gave an interesting response: “I think this stuff about not accepting Medicaid and not accepting Exchanges is crazy.”
Which is ironic, because a May 1998 article from the Rutland Herald profiled how Judith Steinberg, a physician based in Shelburne, had written to her patients that she was no longer accepting individuals insured by the state’s largest Medicaid managed care organization
Why is all of this relevant? Because Dr. Judith Steinberg just so happens to be Howard Dean’s wife.
