Herbert, rivals exchange volleys in first debate – Salt Lake Tribune

A Medicaid-expansion bill Republicans passed will help just 16,000 people who are homeless, mentally ill or extremely poor. Weinholtz, chairman of CHG Healthcare, said that “is an insult to all Utahns.”

He said it covers “the least amount of Utahns at the most expensive price. So not only was this morally bankrupt, but it was fiscally irresponsible.”

Weinholtz said because Herbert opted not to accept full Medicaid expansion, Utahns are leaving hundreds of millions of dollars in federal taxes they pay on the table every year. “It’s a great example of putting politics before people.”
