The biggest shocker from today's State of the State has to be Gov. Jan Brewer's call to expand AHCCCS to 133 percent of the federal poverty level.

I wrote a piece on this last week if you need some background, but Brewer today called for the state grab the matching federal dollars and create a new tax on hospitals to pay for the state's portion. Details remain sketchy, but the news is sure to delight Democrats and the hospital/healthcare lobby. Republican lawmakers have been frosty to the idea, so this is shaping up to the be the biggest fight of the session.
