GRAND BLANC (WKZO) -- Governor Snyder continues to put pressure on Senate Republicans to pass his Healthy Michigan plan to expand Medicaid.  He visited Genesee County Thursday to speak at Genesys Health System, calling it "dumb not to support this."

As many as 470-thousand Michigan residents would be covered by the Medicaid expansion if the Senate passes Snyder's plan.  The bill passed the House earlier this month, but the Senate adjourned for a two-month recess last week without a vote.
