Nash board endorses Medicaid expansion – Rocky Mount Telegram

The Political Agitator response: Now this is some great news especially coming out of Nashville NC.

If state leaders follow suit and agree to expand the federal program that covers health care costs for low-income families, North Carolina would see 43,000 new jobs and receive $21 billion in federal matching funds over the next five years, according to the resolution passed unanimously by county commissioners.

Commissioner Robbie Davis said Republicans on the board voted for the resolution because it was amended to include a call for Medicaid reform. (Source: Read more)

Under that, someone commented “Already bought my first slave.”

The school confirmed to ABC11 the photo was taken in Gettysburg during a school trip focused on the Civil War a few weeks ago.

The photo and the comments have since been removed from the site. ABC11 is not identifying the person who posted the picture due to their age.

The school system says it has taken action, but can’t say exactly how it addressed the student’s conduct. (Source: Read more)
