GOP governors pressure Obama on Medicaid
San Francisco Chronicle

Republican governors are ratcheting up pressure on President Obama to scale back a key provision of his health care law. In a letter to Obama last week, 11 governors asked for a meeting “as soon as possible” to negotiate for greater control over their Medicaid programs. Among other things, the governors want the option of expanding Medicaid – the state-federal program for the poor and disabled – in a much more modest way than envisioned in the law.
