A federal court has struck down Michigan's Medicaid work requirement law. The law required that adults enrolled in the Healthy Michigan plan be either working or in school in order to qualify for the health insurance program.

Today on Stateside, a federal judge has invalidated Michigan's Medicaid work requirements. Republican leaders in the state Legislature are already pushing back. What does this mean for the more than 200,000 people in the state subject to those requirements? Plus, we'll talk about how the Democratic candidates for president stack up when it comes to addressing the concerns of black voters.
