Kasich Continues Backing Medicaid Expansion

Ohio Governor John Kasich says he hasn't given up on his plan to expand Medicaid.

The Ohio Senate's version of the state budget bill does not include Medicaid expansion. Same for the House version. But business leaders, labor groups and Democrats continue to call for majority legislative Republicans to do something soon to make sure Medicaid is offered to the low income Ohioans who lack health insurance coverage.
