470,000 Michigan Residents Can Have Medicaid Expansion Benefits

Problem Fixed!

Michigan become the 25th state to adopt Medicaid Expansion via the Affordable Care Act.  One has to wonder how long it will take Medicaid Expansion to become available to millions more Americans in the 27 remaining states. 

Kaiser Family Foundation maintains a data base and website related to the Affordable Care Act.  After the excerpt from the Eclecta Blog we are posting a table with states of State Exchange development and Medicaid Expansion.

A house divided against the middle class cannot stand.

It took two votes, but months after Governor Rick Snyder (R-MI) told legislators to take a vote, not a vacation,” Medicaid expansion has finally passed Michigan’s state senate. An estimated 470,000 Michiganders who currently earn too much to qualify for Medicaid are likely to get fully subsidized health insurance as part of the Affordable Care Act.
Now a state Republican official is predicting the political wrangling that ended with Senator Tom Casperson (R-Escanaba) switching his vote in favor of expansion will cost the state GOP big in 2014.
“We will see division in our county, district and state party,” Adrian M. Poulisse, the Michigan GOP’s 1st Congressional District Secretary, wrote on the Delta County Republican Party website. “We will see primary challengers step up against incumbents. We will see some of the most divisive conventions we have ever seen.”
