State Senator Joni Ernst (R-Red Oak), who is running for U.S. Senate, was mentioned over the weekend by MSNBC’s Chris Matthews who pointed out in her “notes from the Capitol” her opposition to Medicaid expansion when she wrote that new Medicaid recipients “have no personal responsibility for their health.”  Ernst voted against provisions of Obamacare that were debated in the Iowa Senate last session.
