Senator Casey Says Proposed Health Care Bill Could Worsen Opioid Epidemic
WILKES-BARRE -- Democratic U.S. Senator Bob Casey believes that the health care bill proposed by Republicans could make the opioid crisis even worse. He came to the Luzerne County Courthouse Monday with one question on his mind. "In the midst of trying to solve this problem, why would we ever cut the program that has the greatest impact on it over time? Medicaid and in particular, Medicaid expansion," Casey said.
