A half-dozen states are still trying to decide whether to expand Medicaid enrollment within their borders under the new federal health care law, more than three years after the law was signed and a year after the Supreme Court gave them an easy way to opt out.
The stigma of "Obamacare" is so potent in many red states that some Republican leaders are walking a linguistic tightrope, trying to avoid being seen as joining the massive new health care entitlement but still hoping to get a piece of the money being offered.
But "because Medicaid programs differ from state to state," his spokeswoman Alexia Poe said, "what we're trying to do here, looks different than Arkansas, Iowa, etc."
"The governor and commissioner's primary goal is to maximize Tennesseans' options in the evolving health insurance marketplace," said Alexia Poe, spokeswoman for Gov. Bill Haslam, a Republican. "They also believe that Tennesseans should be able to keep the coverage they were assured they'd be able to keep."
