  •  Like Ohio, it's a ruse (5+ / 0-)

    In both states, you have right wing GOP governors who "allege" they want the Medicaid expansion, but who are being "thwarted" by their GOP controlled state legislatures.

    It's BS.  If they wanted it, they would have it.  Their only motivation is to dodge public responsibility for screwing over low income uninsured people in their respective states.

    If anything, they're pressuring Obama to help them further  eviscerate and privatize Medicaid.  He's more than willing to help them, but so far his hand are tied (thank goodness0.

    It has everything to do with protecting their conservative base and their corporate donors.  

    Hold their feet to the fire - all the state level GoP crooks who "just can't seem to get this bill passed in their legislatures".

    "If you can't take their money, eat their food, drink their booze and then vote against them, you have no business being up there."
