Just a quick update. The

Just a quick update. The Michigan Senate has moved the 'medicaid expansion' bill hb 4714 out of committee, along with 3 other senate bills introduced by republicans that do 'a little bit less' than the hardcore bill proposed by the house. It is predicted the vote will come up sometime this month.

It is my belief that this was the gameplan from the beginning. It will 'save face' for the repubs by voting against the democrat proposed medicaid expansion, while saying that 'had' to pass something to comply with the mandates set forth by the feds, and it might as well be the 'toned down' version.

In the end, Michigan taxpayers suffer.
