Ballot Issue 2 on the November ballot reads: “An Act To Enhance Access to Affordable Health Care. Do you want Maine to expand Medicaid to provide healthcare coverage for qualified adults under age 65 with incomes at or below 138% of the federal poverty level, which in 2017 means $16,643 for a single person and $22,412 for a family of two?” Our panelists debate the pros and cons of the ballot measure.
