In his State of the State address, Gov. Mike Pence reaffirmed his opposition to expanding Medicaid in Indiana.
It's hard to fathom why he is doing this — except out of spite directed against the president — since expanding Medicaid would be a huge bargain for Indiana (100 percent of the costs would be borne by the federal government through 2016, and 90 percent thereafter), and 181,930 residents would benefit, according to an estimate from the Kaiser Family Foundation.
Maybe Hoosiers will finally wake up and realize the Republican Party doesn't care about the citizens of this state or this country. Their track record for the last 12 years proves it.
Pence is nothing but a Bush/Daniels clone and should be removed from office.
