SEIU joins chorus telling Sandoval to expand Medicaid

The Service Employees International Union has joined a chorus of voices, including many in the medical community, urging Gov. Brian Sandoval to expand Medicaid under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

The governor continues to say he will make a decision soon, but the union has sent 300 signed postcards -- release is attached here -- to try to pressure Sandoval. Not sure he will listen to SEIU, but it can't hurt.

This comes on the heels of a medical consortium pushing him and a day after Sandoval adviser Pete Ernaut seemed to indicate on "Ralston Reports" that the governor will do so.

I have always thought he would, but I have been wrong. Sandoval has only a few weeks to make up his mind as he prepares his 2013 budget plan to be unveiled at his State of the State on Jan. 16.
