Rally cry

Modern Healthcare - - LATE NEWS -

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, one of the fiercest Oba­macare crit­ics among Repub­li­can gov­er­nors, ral­lied sup­port last week for rais­ing Med­i­caid el­i­gi­bil­ity in or­der to draw fed­eral fund­ing un­der the health­care law. A day later, a coali­tion of Democrats and mod­er­ate Repub­li­cans in the state Se­nate passed a bud­get that in­cluded Brewer’s plan to cover res­i­dents earn­ing as much as 138% of the fed­eral poverty level. The plan’s suc­cess in the Repub­li­can-led House re­mains un­cer­tain.
