    ..if the Legislature rejects the expansion.
    I've heard analysts posit that many of these republican legislatures and governors are just posturing for the teabag/hard right element. There is no way Rick Perry for instance will get away with this in Texas, not with the powerful hospital lobby.

    Most of the states making this noise are in the south and need this funding too badly to continue with last 4 years of obstruction on everything. They lost and will continue to lose if they keep it up.

    Good on Governor Nixon a Dem for doing what's right even when out-gunned - for now anyway

    Thx TomP
