Part 3

    Ohio Governor john Kasich wants to expand the state’s Medicaid program, but is getting push-back from conservative Republicans in the General Assembly. Kasich, Ohio Democratic legislators and other proponents of Medicaid expansion say it will save the state money and insure more Ohioans, but opponents claim it will cause Ohio to lose jobs and increase the state’s cost to cover health care. Ohio Public Radio and Television Statehouse News Bureau Chief Karen Kasler joins Ohio Senators Eric Kearney and Bill Seitz to discuss the arguments for and against expanding Medicaid in Ohio.
