Gov. Rick Perry Rejects Obama's Healthcare Plan

Even if the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the President's healthcare law, Texas Governor Rick Perry says Texas is rejecting the plan.
In a letter to the U.S Health and Human Services Secretary, Governor Perry said he has no intention of implementing a state insurance exchange or expanding medicaid, two main components of the plan.

Perry also said he would not be part of the socialization of healthcare.

Locally, County Judge Woody Gossom said even if the healthcare law were to come to Texas, the supposed cost savings would be almost non existent.

"We do not have a good solution right now," explained Gossom, "and we have got poor people that are getting medical services, it's just who pays for them? And what we don't have is a good plan and organized way of paying for them."

Judge Gossom also said in order to really change healthcare the politicians in charge of making those decisions need to offer solutions to the problem, and not just criticisms.
