 Governor John Kasich says he’s optimistic that the state Controlling Board will approve the expansion of Medicaid to an additional 275,000 Ohioans on Monday. 

“It’s just the right thing to do,” Gov. Kasich said.

“This is not a program designed to encourage dependency,” he said of the government-funded insurance for the poor. “It is a program designed to construct a bridge so that people can be functioning in a way where they can contribute.”

When Kasich finished, six others stepped up, one-by-one, to a lectern emblazoned with the words “Now is the Time. Show Ohio Cares.”

  1. The problem is that the GOP Legislature will challenge the ruling if the the Controlling Board votes to approve it.
