Developing: Why Doesn't Gretchen Whitmer's Husband Mark Mallory Accept Patients From Healthy Michigan?

Gretchen Whitmer and Michigan Dems Chair Brandon Dillon like to take shots at Attorney General Bill Schuette over Healthy Michigan and medicaid expansion, claiming Schuette's election could put the program in jeopardy. 

However, West Michigan Politics has learned Whitmer's husband, Dr. Mark Mallory, owner of a Lansing area dental practice, refuses to accept patients from the Healthy Michigan program!


Perhaps her husband should educate Whitmer on the instability of the program, as well as the long term financial problems it faces?

Actually, she's a smart girl-she already knows. She just doesn't seem to care.

 It has helped people certainly, but we need to be real about what it means going forward, and how we can be responsible while administering it. At the LEAST.

According to Chad Livengood of Crain's Detroit:

"Whitmer and her Democratic allies are making Snyder's signature domestic policy achievement — the expansion of Medicaid eligibility — their signature policy issue to run against Republican Attorney General Bill Schuette in the governor's race this fall.
"We're going to make it a big issue this fall," said Brandon Dillon, chairman of the Michigan Democratic Party, who kicked off an "Unhealthy Michigan" campaign Thursday to highlight Schuette's opposition to the program. "The fact is, Schuette wants to take away Rick Snyder's signature achievement — and we want to protect it."

They contend Schuette's past efforts to dismantle the Affordable Care Act that provided 90 percent federal funding for the entitlement program and his support of work requirements will lead to the demise of Snyder's Healthy Michigan program."
