CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Saying that an expansion of Medicaid will help some of the poorest Ohioans, Gov. John Kasich included the much-anticipated announcement in his two-year budget proposal Monday.  Greater Cleveland Congregations, a coalition of 40 religious groups and the lead organizer of the Northeast Ohio Medicaid Expansion Coalition, pledged Monday to do our part to make sure Ohio legislators understand that expanding Medicaid will keep Ohioans€™ tax dollars here in our state, working to help our economy, our health and our state budget.
