California rakes in health care grants
Sacramento Bee

The Obama administration on Tuesday awarded California community health centers $122 million in grants under the embattled Affordable Care Act. While the Supreme Court is considering whether to scrap the health care law, or at least its controversial individual mandate, the administration rolled out the new grants totaling $728 million nationwide as a show of the law’s benefits. All told, over five years, the law provides $11 billion for construction, renovation and expansion of the community health programs.
