‘Political Rewind’ replay: If GOP can’t repeal Obamacare, Nathan Deal may expand it

Oh, you missed a good one. Today’s edition of GPB’s “Political Rewind” began with the strange espionage tradecraft of the chairman of the U.S. House Intelligence Committee, then skittered into the closing days of the state Legislature and curious doings around a bill to make adoption easier in Georgia.

But the big finish was the breaking news (on ajc.com, of course) that, one weekend after the collapse of the GOP effort to repeal Obamacare, Gov. Nathan Deal said he would begin negotiations with Washington (and Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price) for changes to the Medicaid program.

If you didn’t catch it live, listen to it here now:

Today’s panelists: Host Bill Nigut; yours truly; Democratic consultant Tharon Johnson; Republican consultant Brian Robinson, and a special appearance by GPB’s Sam Whitehead.
