Health Overhaul Washington

Health Overhaul Washington

Nearly 100 demonstrators open umbrellas in unison in a symbolic gesture over the proposed expansion of Medicaid coverage Thursday, March 14, 2013, in front of the Pike Market Medical Clinic in Seattle. Organizers said that more than 261,000 low-income Washington residents would be covered under the expansion if the legislature acts this session. Gov. Jay Inslee has previously said it's time to move ahead with expanding Medicaid coverage in the state, arguing that the effort is a good financial deal for taxpayers. Some Republicans have expressed concern that the federal government may eventually lower its commitment to the Medicaid expansion laid out under President Barack Obama's health care law, leaving states paying the bill for providing medical coverage for more low-income people.
