Politically Speaking: Midterms, Medicaid And Nullification
Every week, St. Louis Public Radio's Chris McDaniel, Jo Mannies and Jason Rosenbaum talk about the week’s politics. Jo is on vacation this week, so Capitol reporter Marshall Griffin joins us from Jefferson City for the show.
Note: You can subscribe to us on iTunes now.
On the show, we discuss whether or not the 2014 elections are a bust, get into Medicaid expansion in Missouri, and explain what's going on with this year's nullification bill.
On the show:
- Jason pontificates on what the repercussions will be for Democrats not coming up with a challenger to incumbent Auditor Tom Schweich, a Republican.
- We discuss the recent movement on Medicaid expansion -- but still conclude it's not happening this session.
- Marshall fills us in on the new nullification bill and how it differs from last year.
