GOP Governors Split on Obamacare Insurance Exchanges

By    |   Monday, 30 May 2011 09:50 AM EDT

Republican governors are mixed in their responses to President Barack Obama’s healthcare law. Govs. Rick Scott of Florida, Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, and Susana Martinez of New Mexico adamantly resist putting any of Obamacare’s provisions into place, Politico reports.

GOP, governors, insuranceBut Mitch Daniels of Indiana, Scott Walker of Wisconsin, and Haley Barbour of Mississippi are working to implement the health exchanges the law mandates. The exchanges are Internet-based insurance markets.

It’s a fine line for Republican governors, many of whom are challenging Obamacare’s constitutionality in court. While they want to see the law overturned, they also are being practical about it — trying to gain control of what they do have to implement.

For example, Daniels permitted Indiana to become one of only three states to take a multimillion-dollar grant to create a health exchange.
