Ohio Gov.’s Presidential Bid Faces GOP Scrutiny After Medicaid Expansion Support
Republican presidential hopeful John Kasich may have a tough road ahead to the Republican nomination because of his stances that are at odds with some conservatives. Elsewhere, Sen. Ted Cruz, another GOP presidential hopeful, never got health coverage under the health law.
Ohio Gov. John Kasich Virtually Certain To Run For President, Sources Say
As a Republican elected twice as governor of the critical battleground state of Ohio, [John] Kasich is a potentially formidable candidate. But he has also angered conservative Republicans with his decision to accept an expansion of the Medicaid program under Obamacare. He has also supported the Common Core educational standards, something derided by some conservatives as "Obamacore." (Karl, 5/17)

It Turns Out Ted Cruz Does Not Get His Insurance Through Obamacare
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) wants to kill Obamacare, but he admitted that he might have to sign up for it after his wife took a leave from her job and its benefits. As it turns out, Cruz never signed up for Obamacare. He purchased his family's health insurance off the open market. (Zezima, 5/16)
