Obama: 'Political Spite' Motivating States to Refuse Medicaid Expansion

CNS News reports:
Republicans "still can't bring themselves to admit that the Affordable Care Act is working," President Obama told a news conference on Thursday. He also took aim at states that have not expanded their Medicaid programs:

"This does frustrate me -- states that have chosen not to expand Medicaid for no other reason than political spite. You got 5 million people who could be having health insurance right now at no cost to these states -- zero cost to these states -- other than ideological reasons they have chosen not to provide health insurance for their citizens."
Strongman Obama can't get enough of an expanding welfare state.
