DeWine clears petition by Medicaid expansion supporters
Ballot Board must review proposal before drive to collect 385,000 signatures needed to put the measure on next November's ballot


 
In The Region:
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine has certified a petition filed by advocates for expanding Medicaid coverage. And that could put the issue before voters next year.
The Ohio Ballot Board must now review the proposal before advocates can begin gathering the roughly 385,000 signatures needed to put the measure on next November's ballot.
The advocates have said they would prefer that the Legislature pass an extension of the federal-state program instead of having to put the issue before voters. Lawmakers for moths have been trying to find common ground on whether to expand Medicaid to cover more low-income people.
Listener Comments:

Expanding Medicaid to cover more low-income people does not mean more people will be covered. Expanding Medicaid means more dollars will be given to the government to allocate "services". If you are deemed not "acceptable" you will be refused services, but this does not prevent the government from taxing the working class for this "service".
Thanks to Obamacare more people will be working part time(making fewer dollars to be stolen/taxed) because employers will need to change their payroll to part time employees if more than 50 employees - but wait, there's more give me's/corruption. The progressive in the gov. has dictatorially decided to exclude the employers from Obamacare mandates, at least until after the 2014 elections. The "useful idiots" will not be exempt, but Congress will be exempt - and probably anyone else that is helpful to the progressives - unions next? To be sure, it won't be those paying for the dictates in the unAffordableCareAct.
