Another boost for the Medicaid expansion
Here's another episode that reveals that the politics of Obamacare are more complex for Republicans than their tidy political narrative allows. In some good news out of New Hampshire, the GOP-controlled state senate has just passed the state's version of the Medicaid expansion, after a contentious fight. It's now headed to the Dem-controlled house, and it's expected to pass and get signed by the Dem governor. It could expand health coverage to over 50,000 people and boost the state's economy. This could put Republicans who support the expansion in the state at odds with Republican candidates vying to challenge vulnerable Dem Rep. Carol Shea-Porter.
