North Carolina Giving In TooIt looks like North Carolina, under unified GOP control, will likely be next to give up the ghost on Obamacare Medicaid expansion.Not so fast there, Josh. You're perhaps unduly impressed that our Guv had an Oval Office meeting with President Obama yesterday and that McCrory is making gurgling sounds about joining in on Medicaid expansion under Obamacare. It's almost like you think McCrory has influence in this state.

No matter how "soft" on Obamacare Gov. Squishy has become, he's not going to be allowed to do anything that Phil Berger doesn't want him doing: "Senate leader Phil Berger, whose chamber initiated the move last year to reject Medicaid expansion, has not changed his position" (N&O).
Berger has McCrory's testicles locked in his bedside table, along with his .38. I'm sure that he'd also like get hold of The Guv's windpipe too.
