Congress Made Its Health Care Law, Now Let Them Enforce It

Congress made its health care law, now let them enforce it.

That seems to be the sentiment coming from a handful of states according to a new report from which says governors are thumbing their nose at health reform.

A handful of governors are beginning to seriously flex their muscles in attempts to block the federal health reform law by rejecting grants or legislative action, a worrisome move for health reform’s most stalwart supporters.

Alaska and Minnesota were the only states not to apply for health exchange planning grants. Three others — Wyoming, Iowa and Georgia — joined them in not pursuing an additional $1 million grant for rate reviews, released in the summer.

I'm not so sure this is a bad move by the states --Georgia included-- to kill a law that nobody read before voting for it, and contains so much junk in it that repeal and replace isn't such a bad option.
