Is it true that over $1 billion of our tax dollars went to other states because Kansas didn’t expand Medicaid?
No. That would only be true if the federal government set a pool of money aside for expansion and divided it among participating states, but Congress didn’t do that. No ‘extra’ money went to states that expanded because no specific amount of money was set aside to be divided among participants. And since the federal budget is running trillions of dollars of deficits, more Medicaid expansion would have required more borrowing and added to the national debt.
