States Diverge on How to Deal With Health Care Ruling
New York Times

States took broadly divergent approaches on Tuesday to a federal judge’s ruling that invalidated the Obama health care law, while Congressional Republicans used the decision to build momentum for a vote on repealing the act. The Senate’s Democratic leaders answered the Republican challenge by saying they would stage a vote on the repeal measure on Wednesday, when they were certain it would be defeated. The House, where Republicans won a majority in November’s elections, approved the repeal last month.
