First, the good news. The state of Montana last weekend voted to join the ranks of humanity by expanding Medicaid coverage to low income working families. They won't do it by expanding traditional Medicaid, the best route, but still it's a huge win for the human race and a big loss for the Koch brothers, who spent a fortune to deprive poor people of health care.
Here's the bad: WV's new legislative majority has received its marching orders from ALEC, which consists of making the rich richer and everyone else poorer. We'll see how far they get with their tax "reform" proposals in the next year.
