Governor Perry continues to oppose the expansion of Medicaid in Texas under the affordable care act.
But other Republican governors may be reconsidering their opposition.
Governor Perry says he doesn’t want to cram more people into an already broken and costly Medicaid system without any reforms.
Houston state representative Garnet Coleman says Medicaid is administered by the state and could be improved by the state.
While Governor Perry and Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal remain firmly opposed to expanding Medicaid, politico reports other Republican governors are now reconsidering their opposition, because they want to take advantage of the federal funding.
