One of Ohio’s most outspoken critics of the Affordable Care Act says she thinks Ohio’s Medicaid program should be expanded using federal money made available by the federal health care law.

Lieutenant Governor Mary Taylor says she agrees with her boss, Governor John Kasich.

“Well as you know the Governor has been very vocal. He had a rally here in Columbus yesterday. And he’s going to push on. And I support the Governor,” Taylor said Wednesday.

If Ohio declines to expand its Medicaid program, it would forfeit $13 billion in federal funding.
