Here is how out of whack the Legislature’s priorities are: A bill that would commit Kansas to join a state health care compact, separate and apart from the federal government, cleared a House committee this week without debate. This even though the bill is a complete dead end, as it would require federal approval. Meanwhile, Rep. Jim Ward, D-Wichita, can’t even get a hearing on a bill to allow a federal expansion of Medicaid. This even though expansion would inject an estimated $3 billion into the state’s economy and create 4,000 jobs over the next seven years while providing thousands of Kansans with needed insurance.
