States divided on meaning of FL judge's healthcare ruling
A day after a federal judge in Florida struck down the government's plan to overhaul the healthcare system, Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen issued a stern statement: "This means that, for Wisconsin, the federal healthcare law is dead," and that his state "was relieved of any obligations or duties" to carry out the statute. Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper (D), on the other hand, pointed to the 700 people in his state with serious medical problems who already found insurance under the law. "Who goes to these people," the governor said in an interview, "and tells them, 'Sorry, a judge in Florida has decided we now need to put you out in the cold?'"
