Gov. John Kasich voiced concerns about ACA repeal

Gov. John Kasich voiced concern Wednesday about the possibility that President Barack Obama’s signature federal health care law and its accompanying Medicaid expansion would be repealed outright in the new year, without provisions for needy residents. In particular, the governor questioned the impact on drug addicts in the state who are receiving treatment services thanks to the expanded Medicaid support. Kasich also said he would be in Washington, D.C., later this month to participate in a round-table discussion on health care reform, including the Medicaid expansion. Kasich said the state has pumped nearly $1 billion into the drug prevention efforts, and his administration and lawmakers would continue to work on the issue.
