Governor Rick Snyder says he wants to save the Healthy Michigan program that has 600,000 recipients who did not have health care before. But, he says, that may be a problem heading into the new year.


I wouldn't want to see that program discontinued. The Affordable Care Act includes a lot of things besides that though, and if you look at it, I think it could be very challenging for president-elect Trump or anyone to say how do you take these people off the roles.”


Snyder says it's doubtful that the state could afford to take over the program should the new Trump administration abolish it.
