Bobby Jindal says Obama measuring healthcare 'success' by people on food stamp rolls
Washington, July 4 (ANI): Louisiana's Indian-origin Governor Bobby Jindal, who has vowed to reject the expansion of Medicaid under President Barack Obama's new healthcare law, said the president 'measures success by how many people are on food stamp rolls and government-run healthcare'.
"The president, his administration, needs to understand what makes this country great in part is that we're not dependent on government programs," Politico quoted Jindal, as saying on "Fox and Friends."
"That's not the American dream," he added.
The Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act by finding that Congress has the power to make most Americans purchase health insurance through its authority to tax.
However, Republicans on Capitol Hill have urged governors to consider dropping out of the provision of the law that expands Medicaid coverage.
Jindal said he is determined to "stand up and say no."
"It makes no sense. This is a bad law. Obamacare, it doesn't do what the president promised," he said.
"Governors have the right, now with the Supreme Court ruling. They should stand up. We're not expanding Medicaid. We're not implementing the health exchange," he said.
Jindal said the only acceptable remedy to the president's healthcare law is to replace Obama in the fall.
"We're going to do everything we can to elect Mitt Romney; to repeal this bad law and then replace it a more patient-centered healthcare reform that puts patients, not the government, in control - not the government," he said. (ANI)
