Fresh from another Supreme Court validation of his landmark healthcare law, President Barack Obama visited Nashville, Tennessee to push state governments to expand the Medicaid health program for the poor. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Obamacare, as the president's law is known, envisions a major expansion of the Medicaid program, but nearly half of all U.S. states, mostly Republican-controlled, have rejected that part of the law. The Tennessee legislature voted against an expansion in February, joining 21 other states in doing so. Citing lower costs and a decreasing number of uninsured patients, Obama said he was "feeling pretty good about how healthcare is going," and said his focus was now on how he could further improve the healthcare system.
