Unhealthy GOP leadership in Kansas, Missouri

Republican officeholders in Missouri and Kansas are vowing to stall progress on the Affordable Care Act, despite the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that upholds its constitutionality. Their intransigence will shortchange citizens and economies.

Both states are far behind on creating insurance exchanges.

In Kansas, Gov. Sam Brownback foolishly gave back $32 million in federal money aimed at starting a computer infrastructure.

Missouri has also passed up start-up money, and lawmakers actually authorized a statewide vote in November to prohibit the governor from moving forward on an exchange without legislative approval.

Unless leaders in both states quickly come to their senses, they’re likely to have the “dreaded” federal government design exchanges for them.

1. At least in Missouri

Nixon should fight the GOP. He can be a bit of a DINO at times but on this he'll probably fight.
