Maya Wiley: Many Confederate States Refused to Expand Medicaid

On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” Maya Wiley, Professor of Urban Policy & Management at the New School’s Milano School of International Affairs, the New School’s Senior Vice President for Social Justice, and the Chair of New York City’s Civilian Complaint Review Board, said, “it’s actually many of the states of the Confederacy that refused to expand Medicaid under Obamacare.”

Host Bill Maher said that Republicans view health care as “a product, not a right. And in fact, health care is a stick to stimulate you to do better so you can buy your own health care. This is the same thing with Donald Trump about, why couldn’t we have solved the Civil War? Because one side thought that black people were farm equipment that could sing.”

Wiley then added, “Well, it’s actually many of the states of the Confederacy that refused to expand Medicaid under Obamacare.”

She also stated that Jimmy Kimmel’s monologue about his child gave “a much bigger platform to the voice to a whole bunch of people who have all the same fear.”
