Your state representatives can accept or refuse Medicaid Expansion
It is up to each state to accept or reject Medicaid Expansion.
The federal government pays 90 percent of the cost of expanding Medicaid to a state. There effectively is just one significant difference between states that accept it and states that reject it...
It is up to a state's legislature and governor to accept or reject the Medicaid Expansion. If you live in a state that has rejected it, you can contact your state-level representatives (and governor) and tell them that the way to represent the interests of the majority of your state's residents would be to accept Medicaid Expansion as soon as possible.
