(POLITICO) Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett is feeling the Medicaid squeeze.
A Republican governor of a Democratic state, Corbett has railed against the health law’s massive Medicaid expansion and omitted it from his proposed budget. But all around him, governors are opting in — including Republicans John Kasich just west of him in Ohio and Chris Christie just east in New Jersey.
Hospitals and advocacy groups are pressing him to take the money — and they amplified the pressure within hours of Christie’s announcement on Tuesday.
