New York Times

Governors told Congress on Tuesday that President Obama had not gone far enough in proposing to let states opt out of major provisions of the new health care law in 2014, and they said they needed more immediate relief from the growing financial burden of Medicaid. “It sounds good, but it provides very, very little actual help,” Gov. Haley Barbour of Mississippi, a Republican, said of Mr. Obama’s proposal.
