Institute releases Medicaid Expansion and EITC fact sheets for Louisiana activists
Loyola University's Jesuit Social Research Institute has released two fact sheets to assist Louisiana activists in educating legislators and the public on state policy surrounding the federal Earned Income Tax Credit and Medicaid expansion.
According to the Institute, expanding Medicaid under the 2010 Affordable Care Act will give hundreds of thousands of low-income Louisianans access to affordable health coverage and grow the state economy.
Likewise, expanding the state's bipartisan EITC policy will invest in families and the economy, while lifting "tens of thousands of Louisianans out of poverty annually," the fact sheet states.
