News: Republicans Against Health Care Act and Medicaid

REPUBLICANS AGAINST HEALTH CARE ACTThe House voted again to repeal President Barack Obama’s health care reform law Wednesday, sending a symbolic but powerful GOP message to voters: The Supreme Court may have upheld it, but it’s still a bad law.”

“It’s the second time the House has voted to repeal the entire health care law — and the 33rd time House Republicans have voted to repeal, defund or knock down any piece of the law.

REPUBLICANS AGAINST MEDICAID: “House Republicans are lining up to repeal the Affordable Care Act on Wednesday, but GOP governors in the South have a real plan to gut the law. 

“Govs. Rick Perry in Texas and Rick Scott in Florida have both said they won’t expand Medicaid to more of the working poor in their states — rejecting a central part of the law designed to cover 15 million more Americans.”

“Unlike the symbolic votes in the House this week, the governors’ tough talk has real-world consequences: Texas and Florida are among five hell-no states, meaning 3 million of the potential Medicaid beneficiaries — or about 1 in 5 nationwide — won’t get coverage through President Barack Obama’s health care law … ” — POLITICO
