State governors on Saturday said they were frustrated with the federal government’s now-stalled effort to overhaul the U.S. healthcare system, saying the process has been more about bluster than action and pledging to press forward with reform efforts at the state level. “In the states, we educate, mitigate, incarcerate,” Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer said, adding that the requirement to have a balanced budget often means tough decisions between education, law enforcement and healthcare. “In Congress, they talk about it.”
