LANSING (WKZO) -- Governor Snyder has apparently had enough of majority Republicans in the Legislature blocking his desire to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act.  The Republican governor is calling in U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to lobby the reluctant GOP lawmakers.

In a conference on Mackinac Island, Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville defended the position of the Legislature, saying they don't want the federal government dictating the program, and he feels if the state accepts two-billion dollars from Washington, that's what will happen.
