NC Medicaid Expansion Blocked! Final Step: Governor’s Signature

Yesterday it became official.

Both North Carolina House and Senate have approved the bill blocking the expansion of Medicaid. Last step: Gov. McCrory’s signature.

The House, the bill passed 74-40.  The Senate voted 31-16 to reject the programs.

Also, in a recent news release, McCrory said the state did not build the systems needed to run its own exchange so it should leave that task to the federal government.
