Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Groups Look To Sway Ohioans On Medicaid Expansion
A group of hospitals, insurers and religious organizations are seeking support from state lawmakers to expand Medicaid, even as Ohio’s governor has yet to say whether he’ll push to cover more low-income adults.
Republican Gov. John Kasich is expected to decide soon whether Ohio should opt for the Medicaid expansion under the federal Affordable Care Act.
He plans to reveal the decision in his budget proposal on Monday.
In the meantime, a coalition of expansion supporters called the Ohio Alliance for Health Transformation has been encouraging lawmakers to back expanded coverage through face-to-face meetings, phone calls and emails.
The coalition’s regional partners are making the pitch locally with letters to the editor and public meetings.
Should Kasich go for the expansion, he’ll need backing from the GOP-controlled Legislature.
