State Medicaid Tax Trap

The bill for expansion hits business in Rhode Island.

May 3, 2019

Medicaid expansion under ObamaCare was sold as a free federal lunch for the states, but the bill is now coming due. Witness Gov. Gina Raimondo’s plan to tax businesses that employ low-income workers to fund Rhode Island’s booming Medicaid case load. Look for this soon in a state near you.

Ms. Raimondo has proposed a 10% payroll tax on businesses with more than 300 workers for each employee who enrolls in Medicaid. ObamaCare requires businesses with more than 50 full-time workers to offer health insurance and duns employers $3,750 for each employee who purchases a plan on the exchanges with a federal subsidy.

But many low-income private employees sign up for Medicaid because they pay nothing. By contrast, the average family earning below 200% of the poverty line with employer coverage will pay about 14% of income on premiums and out-of-pocket costs, according to the Peterson-Kaiser Health System Tracker. More workers also qualify now because ObamaCare’s expansion increased Medicaid eligibility to 138% of the poverty line.

Medicaid enrollment in Rhode Island has increased 63% since 2014. In 2013 the state projected about 40,610 low-income childless adults would become eligible, yet 119,754 have since signed up. While the feds have picked up most of the tab, state Medicaid spending has also increased by more than 25% since 2013.

Last year 6,428 more people enrolled in Medicaid than Rhode Island estimated and spending tracked nearly $20 million above budget projections—about as much as Ms. Raimondo’s new employer tax would raise. “The biggest part of our budget is Medicaid, over $1 billion a year,” Ms. Raimondo said recently. “The reality is this is a growing cost and you are getting the benefit of an employee with health insurance. To pay a small piece of our cost, I think, is reasonable.”

Another reality is her Medicaid tax would discourage businesses from hiring low-income workers and prompt many to shift jobs to other states or automate work where possible. Employers won’t know whether their workers enroll in Medicaid until they get the state’s tax bill, and some can’t afford to provide even low- or no-cost plans.

PHOTOS – FUNDRAISER FOR LT. GOVERNOR DAN FOREST, NORTH CAROLINA

Friday, August 26th, 2016

 

A barbecue fundraiser for Lt. Governor Dan Forest of North Carolina, was held on August 24, 2016 at the lovely home of Betsy and Jim Duncan in Durham.  Lt. Governor Forest spoke of the tremendous accomplishments that have been made under the Pat McCrory administration.  
North Carolina’s unemployment rate decreased below the national average to 4.7 percent in July. Since Governor Pat McCrory entered office in 2013, the number of unemployed persons in North Carolina is 45 percent lower.   

Recently, Governor McCrory stated that “As home to one of the fastest growing economies in the country, North Carolina’s unemployment rate has now dropped below the national average and more than 300,000 new jobs have been added since 2013,” said Governor McCrory. “We have successfully modernized the tax code, fixed the broken unemployment insurance system and implemented an economic development strategy that has strengthened the economy and put more people back to work.”
 
The unemployment rate is now lower than it has been since May 2007 and the size of the labor force is 2.9 percent larger than in January 2013.
