Iowa And Nebraska Looking For Best Health Care Plan

Posted: 19 November, 2012

LINCOLN (AP) - Iowa and Nebraska are turning down different paths to comply with the federal health care law. Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad said Friday that his administration will continue to work on a state-based exchange, but he left open the possibility of defaulting to a federal program. In Nebraska, Gov. Dave Heineman declared the state-based exchange too expensive and told the federal government to build one for his state. The different approaches reflect a broader struggle among Republican governors who now have to submit to a law they feverishly oppose. Both governors insist that they're making a good-faith effort to follow the law, despite a lack of guidance from the federal government. But Democrats from both states say the governors haven't done nearly as much as they could have to prepare.
