WAYNESBORO, Va. (WHSV) -- Virginia state lawmakers will be trying to pass a two year budget. Political analysts say a hot button issue is a Medicaid expansion plan.
Democrats want a state budget that includes a Medicaid plan that incorporates private insurers. However, leaders in the Republican-controlled house are against it.
Samantha Moseley, who doesn't have insurance, is one of about 400,000 people in the Commonwealth, that aren't eligible for Medicaid.
"A lot of times you feel like, you feel so frustrated that whenever there's bumps in the road as far as insurance goes, and things that you know hold you back, that there is somebody there that actually cares," said Moseley.
Under requirements to get Medicaid, people must be parents or caretakers or be 65 years old or older.
