How Medicaid Funds and Fuels the Opioid Epidemic
By The Daily Bell Staff - February 17, 2018

It is taken as a fact that Medicaid helps in the fight against opioid addiction.

A recent Senate committee report pointed out that prominent publications like the New York Times say:

"Public appreciation for the program [Medicaid] has steadily increased as people come to understand its importance in the health care system, including its central role in combating the opioid epidemic."

This “fact” took a central role in defending Medicaid funding in Obamacare during last year’s attempts to repeal the law.

The only problem is that this fact isn’t true.
