21. Yep, and it potentially reaches far beyond Medicaid

The federal government has long imposed its will on states regarding any number of issues by threatening to cut off all funding for related items, i.e., raising the drinking age to 21, and I believe lowering the level that constitutes drunk driving.

SCOTUS has now ruled that such a choice is no choice at all, and I anticipate that states will use this argument to push back against any such issues in the future.
