At $30,000, a family likely qualifies for Medicaid in their state.

If we use his example of Atlanta, Georgia an income of $30,000 would be over the requirements for Medicaid for quite a lot of families [1]

The poorest states it would seem to me are also the ones most stringent with offering Medicaid.

I didn't use an example of a family, because a family making $30,000 is not the median. The median family income in Georgia is $68,000: https://www.deptofnumbers.com/income/Georgia. This is a city where you can buy a 3BR house bigger than the one I grew up in for a $920/month mortgage: https://www.redfin.com/GA/Kennesaw/3072-Black-Gum-Dr-NW-3015....
