Sara Rosenbaum, a professor of law and health care policy at George Washington University, said Mr. Obama's move to give states the final decision is "consistent with the Affordable Care Act itself," whose authors wanted to let states set up their own markets and guidelines.
"There is a tremendous gap in the law ... When Congress passed the law, it assumed Medicaid for the poorest people," said Sara Rosenbaum, chairwoman of the Department of Health Policy at George Washington University. "The bottom line on the whole is that if you don't expand Medicaid, people are going to be without coverage."
