Oh, Look. Expanding Medicaid Creates Jobs

It hasn't been a great few weeks for Republicans, and it looks like it's only going to get worse:

Anticipating a boost in business from the Affordable Care Act’s Medicaid expansion, Molina Healthcare of Michigan plans to add 337 new jobs in Troy and 125 new jobs in Detroit.

Molina is the third largest Medicaid health-maintenance organization in Michigan with about 213,000 members as of January and 315 employees. It is a subsidiary of Long Beach, Calif.-based Molina Healthcare.


“The Affordable Care Act in general has had a positive impact on Molina Healthcare as an enterprise, which has led to a lot of the growth that we’re anticipating over the next several months and years,” Stephen Harris, president of Molina Healthcare of Michigan, said Tuesday night.

Who ever would have thought that increased demand in a product would lead to more jobs? And why does the FREE MARKET allow such job creation to occur when its will is being so clearly defied?
