Medicaid Expansion Finds Grass-Roots Support in Conservative Utah

In this conservative state, which has not supported a Democratic presidential candidate in more than a half-century, a grass-roots campaign to expand Medicaid is building considerable momentum as Election Day approaches. If it wins approval here, it could happen almost anywhere. On Nov. 6, Utah voters will consider a ballot measure that would expand Medicaid to cover up to 150,000 more people under the ACA. Two other conservative states, Idaho and Nebraska, will also vote that day on Medicaid expansion proposals. The states, if the measures pass, will join more than 30 others that have expanded Medicaid under the 2010 health care law. In all three states, advocates are trying to outflank Republican lawmakers who have blocked expansion efforts. (Robert Pear, New York Times)
