WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is criticizing Republican governors on their challenging of both the constitutionality and funding of the president’s signature health care legislation.
On Monday, Press Secretary Robert Gibbs called out GOP leaders who were bemoaning the law — and threatening to ignore its provisions — while still taking the funds needed for implementation. Gibbs hinted that they will be called out at a conference this month.
“[T]he implementation of this important law is moving forward,” said the departing spokesman. “I don’t know that we have had specific outreach [to Republican governors]. I know the governor’s association is in town later this month, but our policy has and continues to be that implementation moves forward.”
