Faith leaders support Medicaid expansion
Modern Healthcare

Sister Simone Campbell, the Catholic nun who led the “Nuns on the Bus” two-week tour this summer to oppose Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) House budget, has joined other faith leaders in urging the nation’s governors to support the reform law’s Medicaid expansion.

“As a person of faith who deeply values all of life, it is a pro-life stance to make sure all of these folks are covered and have access to quality, affordable healthcare,” Simone said during a conference call Monday hosted by Faith in Life, a Washington, D.C.-based organization established to advance faith in the public arena.
