Some Senate Dems mum on Medicaid
Editor's note: This piece was co-authored by Jennifer Haberkorn There may be more to read from what wasn’t included in Sen. Jay Rockefeller’s letter to the White House last week than what was in it.

Multiple letters released June 9 — designed to show that Senate Democrats won’t support efforts to dismantle Medicaid — didn’t mention the Republican proposals to repeal the program’s maintenance of effort provisions. And they didn’t include 12 Democratic senators who some worry may be persuaded to join Republican efforts to chip away at the program.
