Washington (CNN) – On the day that congressional Republicans appointed to the “super committee” meet for the first time, GOP governors are looking for more flexibility in reforming Medicaid.
Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour said a Medicaid reform report produced Tuesday by the Republican Governors Association should be “helpful” for the congressional super committee.
“Many of these solutions will save money but also improve the quality of care. That ought to be and I expect is exactly what Congress is and should be looking for,” Barbour said.
Research on the report began before the “super committee” selections were announced in August. Barbour called the timing of the release purely “serendipitous.”
