ID Proposition 2: Expanding Medicaid

Reclaim Idaho

Proposition 2 is one of two statewide initiatives in Idaho. It would allow the state to expand Medicaid coverage to people who are younger than 65, whose income is 133% or less of the federal poverty level and who are not eligible for other state insurance coverage.

Steve Jackson spoke with initiative proponent Emily Strizich from the group Reclaim Idaho and opponent Fred Birnbaum, the vice president of the Idaho Freedom Foundation.
