LANSING, Mich. (WOOD) - Gov. Rick Snyder knows his push to expand Medicaid is not popular with some people who supported him for office just three years ago.
Still, he remains convinced that going along with that part of the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, is the right thing to do.
Snyder got the support of the state House on Thursday. The Senate could vote next week.
But just because he has the support of some elected officials, that doesn't mean he has the support of voters.
Some have already said that because of that issue alone, they won't work for Snyder's re-election.
On Friday, 24 Hour News 8 asked Snyder how he planned to handle the fallout.
"I think I've weathered some pretty good fallout already on various political issues and again, I'm not here to say that at one point or another, someone on the far right or far left may not like what I'm doing," Snyder said. "That doesn't mean it's not the right thing to do. I'm just going to move forward.
Part of that moving forward will presumably include a re-election campaign, but Snyder had not yet made that official.
Democrats have fielded what is so far their consensus candidate, former Congressman Mark Schauer.
Schauer will be on To The Point on WOOD TV8 Sunday morning at 10 a.m.
