TNR [1] 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 [2], “where it will go to work helping to rev up some other state’s economy instead of Ohio’s.” Brewer said [3] “Saying ‘no’ to this plan would not save these federal dollars from being spent or direct them to deficit reduction.” Concluded Snyder [4]: “This makes sense for the physical and fiscal health of Michigan.”
