Medicaid home care expansion is not infrastructure!

President Biden’s $2+ trillion dollar infrastructure proposal includes $400 billion to expand home care benefits under Medicaid.   Aside from the fact that such spending has nothing to do with infrastructure, it is also not one-time or project-type spending that is typical of infrastructure spending. If this proposal were to pass, what would happen after all the money was spent? Would spending return to its previous level? History has shown that this type of spending would be considered a new entitlement and any effort to reduce the benefit would be considered a benefit cut. All beneficiaries of the benefit would lobby hard to see that the spending is continued. I urge our elected representatives to oppose this proposal and to work hard to see that it does not become law.
