The Inquirer reports: “Despite his opposition to President Obama’s health-care overhaul, Gov. Christie said Tuesday that New Jersey would take money from the Affordable Care Act to extend Medicaid coverage to tens of thousands of low-income individuals. In accepting the expansion, Christie, who is up for reelection this year, joined seven other Republican governors in bucking a GOP trend aimed at countering a key element of what is known as Obamacare. Fourteen Republican governors, including Gov. Corbett, have rejected expanding Medicaid in their states. Overall, 24 states and the District of Columbia have signed on to the expansion.” This is the kind of stuff that keeps Christie from being beloved by conservative activists. Bill Maher’s support probably won’t be enough to win him the GOP nomination.
