Kasich Does End Run Around Republicans

Jill Lawrence: "Ohio Gov. John Kasich has kicked up a political storm by circumventing his legislature to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act. Conservatives don't like Obamacare, the expansion, or the techniques by which their determined Republican governor made it happen, and they're already challenging him in court. Yet Kasich may have strengthened his hand going into his 2014 reelection race. And should he decide to pursue higher ambitions, a solid victory next year in his purple presidential swing state could hasten forgiveness from GOP primary voters -- or a nominee in search of a ticketmate -- in 2016."
