Senate PPACA

Update 7:10 pm:   In a 7-4 party line vote, the Senate Select Committee on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act shut the door permanently on an expansion of Medicaid. But committee Chairman Senator Joe Negron (R-Stuart) is putting forth an alternative plan to cover roughly the same group of people who would have otherwise been covered under the Medicaid expansion. Negron wants to allow uninsured adults and families into the Healthy Kids program.
