    on how much federal money he's turning his back on.  

    Overall, the federal government will finance about 95 percent of the cost of the Medicaid expansion from 2014 to 2019. The federal government will cover 100 percent of the states’ cost of covering newly eligible Medicaid beneficiaries from 2014 to 2016 and will then phase down its federal contribution to 90 percent by 2020. Coverage for previously eligible Medicaid beneficiaries will continue to be financed through a matching system between the states and the federal government which currently ranges from 50% to 74% federal funding
