2012 Senate Bill 1245: Ban Obamacare Medicaid expansion
Introduced by Sen. Bruce Caswell (R) on September 11, 2012 To prohibit Michigan from expanding Medicaid eligibility to include all residents up to 133 percent of the federal poverty level, including single individuals without children. The federal “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act,” a.k.a. Obamacare, originally mandated the expansion, but a U.S. Supreme Court ruling made it optional. Medicaid is a medical welfare program funded by a mix of tax dollars raised by the federal and state governments, and originally targeted primarily at low income families with children.   Official Text and Analysis.
Referred to the Senate Appropriations Committee on September 11, 2012
