States Get More Time to Work on Health Care Plans.

Source: nyt/ap

Many states are still on the fence about President Barack Obama's health care law. Now the administration says governors can have more time.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said in a letter to governors Friday that she still wants to hear by the end of next week if states will be setting up new health insurance markets under the law.

States that can't or won't set up these new insurance exchanges will have theirs run by Washington. But Sebelius said states can now take another month, until mid-December, to submit detailed blueprints.

3. Florida put it on the ballot

as an amendment. A yes vote would have symbolically rejected ACA. It was defeated. All the tea party amendments were defeated, except for tax relief for veterans and seniors. Florida couldn't have been more clear in it's rejection of right-wing garbage.

5. VERY good to hear, considering that extremely lengthy ballot.

Was the word to do the correct thing AND save time by voting 'no' for all of them?

6. I did hear that but

property tax relief for veterans, veteran survivors and the elderly did pass. Those 3 were the only amendments that passed, so not everybody followed the advice.

When I voted, everyone was done in 5 minutes or so which proved that they had done their homework beforehand. My precinct is mostly white, mostly elderly, and mostly Democratic.

4. Hospitals, doctors, health insurance companies all want Obama care.

These groups are big time GOP donors. And money talks. Hospitals will be stuck with the uninsured using the ER and not paying. Doctors will get more patients. Health insurance companies will benefit from the millions of new customers.
All the governors are doing is posturing for their dumb GOP base.
