SB325, children of illegals on Medicaid -- no

I oppose SB325 which allows children of illegal aliens access to Medicaid.  Nevada’s Medicaid program is underfunded.  Further burdening Nevada taxpayers by adding illegal aliens to Medicaid is wrong.  74 more words

AB249 would force taxpayers to pay for abortions through Medicaid which violates my religious rights.

This bill is a 52 page monster. It practically rewrites the State’s Medicaid and insurance laws – again. On THAT basis alone the only proper vote on it is NO. 617 more words
