Perry un­der­stands ACA

Modern Healthcare - - OPINIONS | LETTERS -

Re­gard­ing your re­cent ed­i­to­rial, (“What’s the mat­ter with Texas?” Feb. 11, p. 24), while there may be the per­cep­tion that the Amer­i­can peo­ple voted for the Pa­tient Pro­tec­tion and Af­ford­able Care Act, the fact is that Pres­i­dent Barack Obama was re-elected with less pop­u­lar vote and Elec­toral Col­lege votes than in 2008.

That be­ing said, Texas did not agree. Ku­dos to Gov. Rick Perry for un­der­stand­ing what the ACA will do to in­di­vid­ual states and stand­ing up against the force of the fed­eral government.
