Politico: Republicans Feud Over Obamacare

Republicans have been fighting Democrats for years over Obamacare. Now, theyíre fighting each other.

In red-state capitols in places like Idaho, Tennessee and Mississippi, Republicans are clashing over whether to participate in a Democratic presidentís signature legislative achievement.

At issue are the state-based health care exchanges, set to start in 2014, which will create new marketplaces for people who canít get insurance elsewhere. If states donít declare their plans to set one up by Dec. 14, the Department of Health and Human Services will begin doing it for them. So Republicans face a choice: Create their own and appear to endorse a federal government health care takeover, or allow Washington to take control.

Nowhere is the fight playing out more publicly among Republicans than in Mississippi.


It will be interesting to see what these states end up deciding. My professor thinks most states will end up accepting the Medicaid expansion, because it's too good of a deal not to.
