Rick Perry’s Latest Attempt to Sabotage Health Care Reform

Texas Governor Rick Perry, an opponent of health care reform who supported attempts to overturn the Affordable Care Act, has launced his latest attack against Health Care Reform by threatening to veto any legislation that would help implement the health insurance exchanges called for by the Act.

According to American Medical News: “The exchanges will serve as one-stop marketplaces for qualifying health coverage beginning in 2014. Perry did not want to be seen as aiding the implementation of the health reform law in any way, said Texas Rep. John Zerwas, MD, sponsor of the leading bill to create an exchange, and Texas Medical Assn.”

Perry and other opponents of health care reform are putting partisan politics ahead of the public good.
