UPDATE: HOUSE GOP CAUCUS REJECTS MEDICAID EXPANSION “IN CURRENT FORM”
Caucus Chair Creighton would not say whether expanding coverage to more people is a goal for Republicans.
House GOP Caucus met in a closed door session Monday in which they decided
overwhelmingly to reject Medicaid expansion as proposed under the Affordable
Care Act. After a meeting that sounded a bit like a pep rally – with
lots of cheering happening behind the closed doors – Caucus Chairman Rep. Brandon Creighton emerged to say they
would stand with Gov. Perry and hold the line on Medicaid expansion.
