How the pendulum has swung! First, it was claims of death panels and now despite being offered the opportunity to opt out, many GOP governors are embracing Medicaid expansion (deficits be damned!).

Governer "Scott’s (FL) support for expanding Medicaid is particularly significant — Florida is the fourth most populous state — and surprising. A onetime hospital executive, he has been among the most strident critics of the health care law, and his opposition to it was a cornerstone of his 2010 campaign for governor.

Again, forget what they say, watch what they do! I suspect it is just a matter of time before TX and SC (meekly) come on board.

The more interesting thing is what they'll do after three years and the deficit free money pot stops paying for the entirety of it.

Ohio is expecting a 700 million dollars increase in both 14 and 15, lets say the estimates are close and the federal gvt after 3 years covers 90% of that. That would leave 70 million and the state could handle that amount since Kasich payed down debt and has a rainy day fund. As long as the economy does not bottom out or the federal gvt implodes it should not be a problem. But then there is elections and the state voters might choose to vote in the big spending {D}s and then we will have a problem.

Exactly... lets see what the situation looks like in a few years; will states need to restrict medicaid?
