    McCrory talks about how Medicaid is broken and he wants to fix it instead of taking the money to expand it. OK Gov. McCrory, so far you have been long on fixing things, but I have yet to hear just how you plan to fix it. Please tell us, we might like the idea if you would tell us how you are going to do it.
