Rick Perry Budgets With Medicaid Money He Said He'd Reject
dailykos.com — Texas Gov. Rick Perry was one of the first Republican governors out of the blocks to vow he'd never take any of that federal Medicaid expansion money after the Supreme Court ruled that states could refuse to participate in that provision of the Affordable Care Act. He announced on July 9 that he'd reject the program. Either he didn't send that message to the rest of his administration, or he was lying.
