Governor Brewer Celebrates Approval Of Medicaid Expansion

Jan-BrewerArizona Governor Jan Brewer is celebrating her victory in a bruising fight over her Medicaid expansion plan by holding a signing ceremony for the law authorizing the program. 

The Republican governor is gathering some of the lawmakers from both parties who voted for the law to the ceremony this morning. 

The expansion is a signature part of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul law but is optional for states.  Brewer fought the law but agreed to add more than 300,000 poor Arizonans to the program after the Supreme Court found it was constitutional.
