Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe gestures during a news conference at the Patrick Henry Building in Richmond, Va., Monday, March 24, 2014. McAuliffe is proposing a two-year pilot of an expanded Medicaid program, a suggestion he hopes will persuade Republicans to end an impasse over the state's budget. McAuliffe announced that the federal government said it would not penalize Virginia if it ran a two-year pilot program. House Republicans oppose Medicaid expansion. The federal government has promised to fund the bulk of the expansion. (AP Photo/Richmond Times-Dispatch, Bob Brown).
