Jon Stewart on Medi-can’t states

The Daily Show's Jon Stewart had harsh words this week for states that have not expanded their Medicaid programs under the Affordable Care Act. His 3-and-a-half minutes on this topic last week are very funny - regardless of your political persuasion:

DID YOU KNOW? One governor intends to bypass the legislature. After failing to gain enough support from Republican legislators, Ohio Governor John Kasich will ask a spending oversight panel to expand the state’s Medicaid program, according to reports last week. The Republican governor is expected to make the request to the Controlling Board on Oct. 21. Kasich will ask the seven-member board, made up of lawmakers, for permission to spend about $2.5 billion in federal funds to cover about 275,000 residents under Medicaid. If the Controlling Board approves the request, expanded coverage can start January 1.
