To the Editor:

Having just read the letter [published in the May 22 edition of The Coastland Times] supporting the expansion of Medicaid, I have to express my opposition to it!

The total cost cannot be predicted or planned for. Just because the federal government waves a carrot to entice you to bite does not mean it is good. Read the part where after X years the federal money goes away and it will be up to the state to continue the program.

With the untold number of illegals entering the country, there is no way to fund this program!
