Utah To Expand Medicaid Under Obamacare, GOP Governor Announces
Utah Gov. Gary Herbert (R) announced Thursday that his state will expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act.
"Doing nothing ... I've taken off the table," Herbert said, according to the Salt Lake Tribune. "Doing nothing is not an option."
Herbert pointed to the 60,000 individuals in the state who will gain coverage under the state's expansion of the program, saying it's "not fair" to leave them without a solution.
