Guv comes to town

ICYMI, Gov. Tom Corbett made an appearance in Delco this afternoon.

The occasion? A ceremonial bill signing event for state Sen. Ted Erickson's community-based health care clinic bill.

The familiar Medicaid expansion debate followed Corbett to this event. The Pennsylvania Democratic Party blasted him in a statement and the nurses union urged Corbett to expand Medicaid under Obamacare.

Corbett said his administration continues to have discussions about this issue with the Obama administration.

The state Senate tried to push forward Medicaid expansion in a budget-related welfare code bill at the end of June, but Republican leaders in the state House stripped that from the bill.

Do you support Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act?
