“One bright spot in the CBO report is that federal health care spending is increasing at a slower rate than predicted. Some of that is due to Republican governors, including Gov. Scott Walker, rejecting an increase in federal Medicaid money.”

Um, no. Leaving people uninsured does not really count as slowing the rate of federal health care spending. It’s just leaving people uninsured. Or insuring them at higher cost with Wisconsin taxpayer dollars.
