Govs put off healthcare questions until November
The politics are tricky for governors weighing how to proceed. Just one-third of Americans supported the healthcare overhaul in Associated Press-GfK poll conducted in mid-June. But because federal tax dollars are covering the Medicaid expansion, states that opt out are essentially consigning their residents to subsidize coverage for those in other states. More than two weeks after the Supreme Court gave the green light, many governors from both parties said they haven't decided how their states will proceed on two parts under their control: an expansion of Medicaid, expected to extend coverage to roughly 15 million low-income people, and new insurance exchanges.
