"Republican governors, who have opposed President Barack Obama's 2010 health care reform law from the start, now say they'd like to sit down with him and talk Obamacare. "

2. This is to advance political ploys against the new medical care laws

He should go into such a meeting with a give no quarters attitude, because this is the attitude he will face.

3. They don't want to sit down with their Congressional Reps?

 

Ya'know, the ones who passed it so the President could sign it.

It's sad, but it seems almost none of the Republicans know how the Federal government works (or the actual name of the bill).

he's going to block certain agencies that benefit their states.

6. They want to extend the deadline

They bet on Romney and didn't do their jobs. Now they want to extend the deadline for opting in.

8. My health policy professor predicted this

He said despite the rhetoric, the Medicaid expansion is too good of a deal for states to turn down.

10. Isn't the Federal gov't

going to run the exchanges if a state decides not to set up their own? Hopefully you can still get health insurance that way.
