Governor Snyder holds high tech meeting on proposed Medicaid expansion in Michigan

LANSING, MI (WTVB) - Governor Rick Snyder held a high-tech town hall meeting Monday to talk about Medicaid expansion, or what he calls his “Healthy Michigan” program.  Snyder was linked by computers from his press briefing room in Lansing to several other locations around the state. Snyder says we are already funding the emergency room visits of folks without coverage through our higher insurance fees.  He says it would save money to send them to doctors instead.

The governor took one question from Patriot Radio's Trucker "Randy" Bishop who asked why he just didn’t opt out of Obamacare, like other states have done.  The governor said because that will leave people without healthcare and at the mercy of emergency rooms. State Senate leaders plan hearings on the issue on Wednesday.
