Louisiana GOP Gov. Piyush "Bobby" Jindal is refusing Federal money to pay for Medicaid expansion as noted above in the editorial in his own state. How much is he refusing: $16 billion dollars. This provision is for any state that needs help with poor citizens who need health care. But not in LA it seems. How harsh is that?
Great rundown on that subject seen in this segment from MSNBC.
Makes one wonder why Republicans like Jindal even serve in elected office. Surely not to help people.
Good report here that shows status of state expansion of Medicaid under Obama-care (the ACA).
