WUNCPolitics Podcast: A Conversation With Roy Cooper

WUNCPolitics Podcast

/

It’s the fourth week of the fiscal year, however, legislators and the Governor have yet to agree on a new budget for North Carolina.

Democrat Roy Cooper and Republican legislators are in a standstill over whether, and then how, to expand Medicaid – the federal healthcare program for people living in poverty and with disabilities.

On this episode of the WUNC Politics Podcast, Gov. Cooper discusses the policy and politics of Medicaid expansion, a new candidate for the 2020 gubernatorial race, as well as being a dad.

Jeff Tiberii covers politics for WUNC. Before that, he served as the station's Greensboro Bureau Chief.
