Rick Perry indictment may be a “badge of courage” as he makes the case to New Hampshire activists
WASHINGTON -- Governor Rick Perry chose a heck of a time to polish his boots for a New Hampshire comeback, fresh off an indictment in his home state of Texas.
But in an odd political twist, Perry’s clash with the law may be his best selling point as he attempts to rehabilitate his image with a string of events Friday and Saturday in the nation’s first presidential primary state.
New Hampshire political scientists say they cannot recall another would-be presidential candidate showing up while under indictment. But many New Hampshire Republicans are rushing to his defense, talking about what they consider a politically motivated indictment, instead of Perry’s disastrous 2012 run for president.

Medicaid insurers losing tens of millions from high-cost drug, influx of new enrollees
Buckling from more than $140 million in losses racked up since the start of the year, the companies that contract with the state to insure Medicaid patients are pressing the Patrick administration to boost health payments for low-income residents.
The health insurers’ losses are tied to a high-cost hepatitis C drug approved by federal regulators last December and a surge of nearly 190,000 new members, many with expensive medical needs, assigned by MassHealth, the state Medicaid program. State funding budgeted for the current year falls far short of covering these costs, the insurers say.
