LANSING, Mich. (AP) — The Michigan Senate still hasn't voted on whether to make more adults eligible for Medicaid after hours of closed-door meetings at the Capitol.
Medicaid expansion is a key component of the federal health care law and is supported by Republican Gov. Rick Snyder. But he's had trouble persuading the Senate to go along after the GOP-led House passed legislation in June.
With pressure building, the Senate's Republican leader could yet call a vote Tuesday. The Senate rejected one of two alternative plans earlier in the day, but no voting has occurred since.
Supporters say the Affordable Care Act is here to stay and Michigan can cut the number of uninsured significantly by expanding Medicaid next year. Critics say what they call "Obamacare" should be rejected at every turn.
