Governors split over effects of Obama's healthcare law
Republicans and Democrats, as expected, disagree heartily about whether the healthcare reform law is worth its benefits to state residents—or creates more harm by overburdening state budgets. Both Gov. Pat Quinn (D-IL) and Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI) are members of the National Governors Association's health committee, which met Sunday morning in a downtown Washington hotel with the goal of recommending ideas to cut states' healthcare costs for needy residents. It is a critical moment for the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Republican presidential candidates are calling for its repeal, and the Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments next month challenging the law's constitutionality in requiring all Americans to have insurance.
