Kasich talks Medicaid; Ohio settles with mortgage company; Cleveland is cool


 
  • Kasich talks Medicaid
  • Ohio settles with mortgage company
  • Cleveland is cool
  • Gov. John Kasich has not yet announced whether he’ll push for Ohio to expand Medicaid to more adults. But he’s hinting that he might.
    If Ohio covers low-income adults up to 138 percent of the poverty level, the feds will cover most of the cost.
    Gov. Kasich says he disagrees with many aspects of federal health care overhaul.
    “But this is a different  issue. This is about people who are at the lower economic end, (and) a government that’s proposing to pay 100 percent of those costs for three years. Then it drops to 90 percent.”
    But he notes that for now, the feds are covering only 62 percent.
    Still, he has a concern:  "Can you trust Washington to keep any promise that they make?” 

    Ohio and 45 other states have settled with a Florida mortgage company over allegations of robo-signing and improper handling of mortgage defaults.  Lender Processing Services will pay $120 million and agree to more oversight and third-party reviews of documents in the future. Ohio will get about $2.5 million of that based on the number of documents filed by LPS in 2008, 2009 and 2010. The money will go into a fund for homeowners at risk of foreclosure or who have already lost their homes.


    Northeast Ohio has made another list... but this time it's a good one.  Cleveland was rated the #2 coolest city in the Midwest by MSN, just ahead of Columbus and just behind Chicago.  The reason?  Music -- everything from the Rock Hall to local venues like the Beachland Ballroom and the Grog Shop.
    1 - Chicago
    2 - Cleveland
    3 - Columbus
    4 - Kansas City, MO
    5 - Milwaukee
    6 - Ann Arbor, MI
    7 - Omaha
    8 - Minneapolis/St. Paul
    9 - St. Louis, MO
    10 - Madison, WI
