& Republican Governors
Republican Governor's across the nation are falsely claiming that one of the reasons they are not expanding their Medicaid coverage under the Affordable Care Act is because the Federal Government can not be trusted to keep its part of the funding. However, this argument is suspect for a variety of reasons and has no basis in fact. The Federal Government has only increased funding for Medicaid since its inception and has not reduced funding one time.
