The GOP honestly doesn’t understand how Medicaid — a health insurance program — works. YET ANOTHER STATE is trying to weasel out of reimbursing Planned Parenthood for services rendered. We discuss that and what it is I’m doing in our nation’s capitol this week. (Hint: it has everything to do with the amazing legislator in the show graphic.)
