Even while congressional Republicans continue to talk about repealing the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, some are starting to hesitate at the idea of taking way expanded Medicaid coverage from what probably amounts to millions of people.
WV Senator Shelley Moore Capito was even quoted saying this: “I am very concerned about the 160,000 people who had Medicaid expansion in my state. I have difficulty with that being included.” I'm glad she feels that way. I hope more people on her side of the aisle do as well.
I guess that amounts to good news these days.
THE LATEST EMBARRASSMENT TO WV? Maybe this.
MEANWHILE, BACK AT THE COURTHOUSE...the Don Blankenship case is up to the jury now.
