DES MOINES – The Iowa Senate approved Medicaid expansion Monday, 26-23.

“First step to doing right by uninsured, working Iowans!” Democrats tweeted soon after the vote.  The vote on Senate File 269 was along party lines in the Democratically-controlled Senate.

Iowa Governor Terry Branstad opposes the measure, which would next head to the Republican-controlled House.

Sen. President Pam Jochum said after the vote that “I have no doubt that expanding Medicaid is not only financially smart, is the morally right thing to do.”

Watch Jochum’s closing remarks on affordable health care:
