Medicaid cuts, CBO analysis worry Pa. and N.J. Republicans

Conservative groups and some House Republicans are pushing for a faster halt to the law’s Medicaid expansion — the better, they argue, to save money and return patients to the private insurance market.

But with more than one million people in Pennsylvania and New Jersey having obtained health insurance under the expansion in the last four years, lawmakers from the area were already raising concerns about changes even before their colleagues began pushing for a more rapid approach.
