State Medicaid had unlikely start

State leaders have been adamant in their opposition to President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act with Gov. Phil Bryant calling it “an assault on the liberty of American citizens.”

Bryant has said he opposes the act’s Medicaid expansion that would provide health insurance to an additional 250,000 to 400,000 Mississippians because the state can’t afford it.

But this is not the first time state leaders have grappled with whether to take federal funds to expand health care.
