Poll: Most Pa. voters favor Corbett's Medicaid plan
Seventy-two percent of registered voters in Pennsylvania support Gov. Corbett's proposed Medicaid expansion plan, according to a new Franklin & Marshall College Poll.
The plan, which has yet to obtain federal approval, includes the use of private insurance companies and work requirements.
The poll also found that 64 percent of voters favor increasing the number of state residents who are eligible for Medicaid. That approach was the one originally mandated by Obamacare, but after last summer’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling made it mandatory, only about half of the states have said yes to that approach.
Finally, the poll found that 50 percent of Pennsylvania voters believe Obamacare should be kept, and 40 percent believe it should be repealed.
