Republican vs. Republican on covering uninsured
Modern Healthcare

It’s Republican vs. Republican in the latest round of political battles over healthcare. Conservative Republican legislators in major states are trying to block efforts by more pragmatic governors of their own party to accept health insurance for more low-income residents under President Barack Obama’s healthcare law. Unlike their congressional counterparts, who’ve misfired in repeated attempts to torpedo the law, state Republicans may well sink the expansion of Medicaid in populous states such as Florida and Michigan.
