Alabama's September 18th Referendum Vote Could Have Drastic Effects on Medicaid

Federal dollars at stake here as well. For every one dollar the state provides for Medicaid, the federal government provides more than two.
Critics disagree with "borrowing" money from a trust fund they say will never be paid back.
Voters will head to the polls on this issue next Tuesday.
