NC Dems May Have Formed Faux Conservative Group to Push Medicaid Expansion

RALEIGH – If you can’t beat them, join them, they say. That may be what’s going on concerning the issue of Medicaid expansion and a new pro-expansion “conservative” group that has talking points curiously similar to the expansion talking points issued to the NC Democratic House caucus.

From Carolina Partnership for Reform:

“[…] just last week, new ads funded by “NC Fund for a Conservative Future” started popping up in Raleigh, targeting Republicans with a Medicaid expansion message:

The ad linked through to a website for an organization calling itself “Conservatives for Working Families” with “Paid for by NC Fund for a Conservative Future, Inc.” included at the bottom of the website. NC Fund for a Conservative Future, Inc is registered with the Secretary of State at 8510 Six Forks Road Suite 102, Raleigh, NC 27615 and appears to have been around for a few years.

We like to think we have our finger on the pulse of conservative policy in North Carolina. So this new “conservative” push to expand Medicaid intrigued us.

We began reading the talking points with interest on the Conservatives for Working Families website and discovered something interesting: they are nearly identical to the NC House Democratic Caucus talking points.[…]”

Have Democrats pulled a fast one, faking a conservative organization in order to push mushy moderate Republicans in the direction of Medicaid expansion?

They can’t effectively beat back all the good reasons offered by (some) Republicans NOT to expand Medicaid, so they put on a mask and join “conservatives” to clamor for expanding a wasteful and improper government healthcare program.
