    But Verrilli did not give enough attention to the Medicaid expansion issue which may have contributed to the worst part of the Affordable Care Act decision allowing states to exercsie discretion whether to accept the expanded Medicaid. That was crucial to insuring people who currently have no health insurance by expanding the base of those eligible, but the Court's desion, joined in remarkably and sadly by two Justices who should ahve been on the other side was a very major loss for the whole concept of greater health care inclusion for the previously uninsured. Now many states, against the wishes of their local medical community, have elected not to particpate in the expanded Medicaid program. No kudos there, Mr. Solicitor General.
