Not to be deterred by all their previous attempts to bring more ObamaCare to Kansas, House Democrats attempted yet again to expand Medicaid via a proviso to the budget. The budget was debated on April 27 th in the form of Sub for HB 2365. During the debate, a series of amendments were offered, including one by Rep. Brett Parker to expand Medicaid. However, it failed on a vote of 56-66, a significant decrease from the votes Medicaid Expansion earned in 2017.
