Texas rejects 2 pillars of federal health care overhaul
LOS ANGELES (MCT) — Texas turned down an expansion of Medicaid coverage and said it will not create a state-run health care insurance exchange, joining the chorus of states that are rejecting two key parts of the Obama administration’s health care overhaul.
In a letter to U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius released Monday, Texas Gov. Rick Perry laid out his objections. The rejection had been widely expected, and Perry’s letter echoed similar pronouncements by other conservative Republican governors as well as the GOP’s overall opposition to the health care law.
