When does the Administration think all 50 states will join the Medicaid Expansion?

December 1st, 2013

2017, according to David Plouffe.

David Plouffe said on ABC’s “This Week” that ObamaCare was designed to be implemented by the states.

“And in most of the states [it] is going quite well. You talked about Medicaid expansion. I think it’s just a fact, and it may take until 2017 when this president leaves office, you’re going to see almost every state in this country running their own exchanges eventually and expanding Medicaid. And I think it’ll work really well, then,” he said.

I seriously doubt Texas, and other states will formally join the expansion. But as Nicole Huberfeld recently pointed out, most states are quietly accepting different portions of the law.
