Republican Governors Refuse To Expand Medicaid Because Of Election Year Politics
Never mind that it makes sense.
In the two weeks since the court’s decision, five Republican governors have opted out of expanding their states’ programs and at least four more are leaning toward the same. Many more are undecided. These governors say they were caught by surprise after expecting the court to either strike down or uphold the entire law that they derisively call “Obamacare.”
And they’re gambling that Romney will win, and repeal the Affordable Care Act, even though a Romney win wouldn’t guarantee anything of the kind.
