Medicaid expansion: Governor Evers’ chief of staff, Maggie Gau, says his administration will support it, but Republican Rep. John Nygren says no. 

Gau: “We’re taking our directions from the people of the state, and that’s what they’ve said that they’ve wanted, and that’s why it’s going to be in our budget.” 

Nygren: “Over the years, Medicaid has under funded the true cost of the program…I have not been a proponent of Medicaid expansion, and I don’t believe that any proposal the Evers Administration will put forward will get..general Republican support as well.”
