After failed Obamacare repeal, Democrats press for Texas Medicaid expansion

WASHINGTON – With the Republican-led Senate having failed to repeal the Affordable Health Care Act, Democrats are pressing Gov. Greg Abbott to reconsider his decision not to expand Texas’ Medicaid program.

In a statement following a letter to the governor this week, Houston congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee said it was “fiscally irresponsible and morally indefensible” for Texas not to join 31 other states that expanded their Medicaid programs under Obamacare.
