Like most Utahns, I watch in amazement day after day as our Legislature contorts itself into ever more ridiculous and expensive knots to avoid fully expanding Medicaid. 

In fact, it would be amusing to watch this ideological hissy fit except that, as I speak, millions of Utah dollars are being diverted to other states while Utahns go without. 

Come on, legislators, stop acting like silly circus performers. Do the straight-forward, cost effective, and sensible thing — fully expand Medicaid in Utah. 

I can't believe I even have to write this.
