Three Republican Governors on why they are expanding Medicaid

TNR on what Republican Governors are saying:

[Not expanding Medicaid] “takes $13 billion of Ohioans’ federal tax dollars out of our state and gives it to other states,” Kasich said, “where it will go to work helping to rev up some other state’s economy instead of Ohio’s.” Brewer said “Saying ‘no’ to this plan would not save these federal dollars from being spent or direct them to deficit reduction.” Concluded Snyder: “This makes sense for the physical and fiscal health of Michigan.”

    If a state does not expand Medicaid as offered by the Affordable Care Act [Obamacare], it seems that the decision not to expand, as offered, is either based on some sort of imagined means of revenge against President Obama; or stupidity. Apparently North Carolina has decided to join the stupid states.
