Jeb Bush opposed to Florida Medicaid expansion

(CNN) – Florida's former governor Jeb Bush isn't in alignment with the Sunshine State's current Republican executive on the issue of accepting federal dollars to expand Medicaid coverage to more lower income residents.

Asked by CNN Chief Washington Correspondent Jake Tapper about Rick Scott's recent decision to accept the funds, which are included as part of President Barack Obama's sweeping health care law, Bush said he had reservations about the Medicaid expansion, which will be totally funded by the federal government for the first three years. After that, federal funding will be phased down.

"The Lead with Jake Tapper" premieres Monday, March 18 only on CNN.

Jeb Bush's controversial immigration proposals

(CNN) – In his new book, "Immigration Wars," former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush backs a controversial proposal that could give states the flexibility to deny some emergency room care to undocumented immigrants.

Bush, in an interview with Jake Tapper, CNN's chief Washington correspondent and anchor of the upcoming show "The Lead," said he thinks most states would still "want to have that basic care" but added that the nation should at least have a "conversation" on the issue.

Jeb Bush explains juggling stances on immigration issue

(CNN) – Amidst criticisms that he's flip-flopped on a key part of immigration reform, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush acknowledged Tuesday that he's been supportive both of a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants and of a lesser measure granting only legal status, saying his position is underscored by a desire to de-incentivize illegal immigration to the United States.

Speaking with Jake Tapper, CNN's chief Washington correspondent and anchor of the upcoming weekday program "The Lead," Bush said that while his new book "Immigration Wars" specifically says immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally should be barred from a pathway to citizenship, he could support such a pathway if it's proposed by lawmakers this year.
