You probably remember the news about how South Carolina is on the edge of a Medicaid budgetary crisis and that a high-ranking state Senator was threatening to just shut the whole thing down taking away health insurance from some 1-in-6 South Carolinians. 

(Asking for $663 million in new funding will surely raise eyebrows when the state is already looking to trim that amount from its new budget.)

Well Bill Davis over at Statehouse Report has put together a solid piece that does a good job breaking down all that's in play and some of the probable outcomes of the situation.

Take a read over here and look for more developments on the matter this week.
