Medicaid Expansion in Ohio Gov. John Kasich called for Ohio to expand federal Medicaid by saying that when it comes to the poor, there should be no partisanship. But House Republicans disagree. They've retooled Kasich's budget and nixed expanding Medicaid to cover 275,000 more low-income Ohioans and the $13 billion in federal funds to cover it. Join host Mike McIntyre for a look at budget math, political fallout and the health implications of the house's action, Wednesday morning at 9 on The Sound of Ideas.
