GOP governors want more flexibility on Medicaid
Republican governors met with GOP members of the Senate Finance Committee on Thursday to talk about Medicaid, one of the most politically tricky parts of Obamacare repeal.
- As far as people covered through the Medicaid expansion losing their insurance, "it ain't gonna happen," Minority Whip John Cornyn told reporters.
- Giving states more flexibility over how the program works is key to any Republican Medicaid efforts.
- A per capita cap is looking likely, as are much less strict benefit requirements.
