Please see our March 26, 2102 posting titled "ObamaCare and Medicaid ... The Real Story" for a ful discussion about the legislation and its coercive aspects regarding forcing states to expand Medicaid eligibility or forfeit their federal Medicaid funding for existing programs.
Today the Court adopted the logic we offered in that posting, giving each state the right to choose whether to expand Medicaid coverage or not without forfeiting existing government funding should it opt out of expansion.
That's a victory for the states, for the people and for limited government as well.
It's good to see the Court take this limited government approach to Medicaid.
For a full review and discussion of the "coercive" Medicaid issues, please see the above referenced post.
