Chart of the Day

– With Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett (R) set to announce that his state will take advantage of the Medicaid expansion under President Obama’s health care reform law, Sarah Kliff provides this chart showing that the majority of states will soon have accepted the expansion.
“Corbett wants to include provisions that would require Medicaid recipients to be actively searching for work, and it will ultimately be up to the federal government to decide whether to approve such a provision. Still, the wave of action just weeks before open enrollment launches suggests that some Republican governors are more open to the health law program.”
