Vice President Mike Pence addresses the National Governors Association meeting in Providence Rhode Island

So while he wouldn't quite criticize the new bill, [Baker] did reiterate his concern that whatever Congress does, it allows the Medicaid waiver that MA negotiated with the federal government remain in place.

Montana Gov. Steve Bullock says Republicans in Congress are "still trying to put lipstick on a pig, but guess what?"

Baker said he didn't know enough about the bill yet to say whether it met his litmus tests, but when asked whether he could ever support a bill that capped Medicaid reimbursements he said, "I hate to say no to things because you just never know". "At CVS Health, we have been proactively working with our communities to address this epidemic in a comprehensive way", Merlo said.

In signing the compact, Dayton and the other governors pledged to build cybersecurity governance structures in their states, and conduct risk assessments to identify vulnerabilities. No Democrats support the plan. "It makes no sense and is literally a death warrant for hundreds of thousands of Americans", Malloy said.

More than 30 governors from across the U.S. are gathering in Providence for the summer meeting of the National Governors Association. The alliance was recently certified by the Rhode Island Department of Behavioral Healthcare, Developmental Disabilities and Hospitals to operate a Center of Excellence. "They're leaving out the fact that many of these veterans qualify for VA health care or in some cases already are using VA health care". This was nearly certainly lead to job losses at our hospitals and other health care facilities.

"I've still got to come back to my concerns with regard to the Medicaid population", said Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval, while heading into a private session with Pence following the vice-president's speech. The first version made very severe cuts to Medicaid and some other programmes that would have had a very significant impact to our state.

However, other conservatives, like Kentucky GOP Gov. Matt Bevin, backed the Republican plan to repeal Obamacare.

Johnny Manziel says he's talked to teams about an National Football League comeback
He has a 57 percent career completion rate for a total of 1,675 yards, seven touchdowns and seven interceptions. The former Texas A&M Heisman Trophy victor was a first round pick of the Browns in 2014.

But a handful of Republican governors opposed making a collective statement, noting there was no broad agreement about the nature of their opposition.

"What we have is broken". "Give the states the control and the flexibility and we'll take care of the problem".

What's ahead for the governors in this meeting?

The governor's office and a disability rights group in OH are rejecting Vice President Mike Pence's "false" claim about Medicaid benefits for the state's disabled citizens. He's the first foreign leader to address the NGA.

Ironically, Pence is a former governor from IN, which expanded Medicaid.

But, Caldwell said, rather than fighting to preserve Medicaid access, veterans would be better served by efforts to reform the care the VA provides to those who qualify. "Either way, that's bad for Rhode Island and bad for numerous states whose governors were represented at that meeting".
