Politics Breaking News: New Jersey's Christie Vetoes Medicaid Expansion Bill

Wochit 0:50 mins

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie vetoed a bill that would have expanded Medicaid eligibility under the healthcare law known as Obamacare, his office said on Friday, in an apparent reversal of position for the presumed 2016 Republican presidential hopeful. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) tells Yahoo! News' Chris Moody he's concerned that the Senate's passage of a comprehensive immigration reform bill might put him in the position of having to read some words that are published in the English language. A special session set for next week in Texas will reignite debate over a controversial abortion bill that was blocked after a marathon filibuster and shouting fracas by the bill's detractors.
