State House Speaker Jase Bolger, R-Marshall, said Friday that the House wants to wait until after a U.S. Supreme Court ruling on President Barack Obama's federal health reforms to decide its next steps on the exchange.
"The governor and I are not in agreement on this issue," he said. "The rights of our citizens to control their own health care is more important than an IT (information technology) deadline."
Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette is supporting the legal effort to get the federal reforms declared unconstitutional.
State Rep. Chuck Moss, R-Birmingham, who chairs the House Appropriations Committee, also said the GOP caucus doesn't want to act unless it has to.
"We don't like Obamacare; we don't like national health care. We don't think it's good for the country; we don't think it's good for Michigan," Moss said. "We don't want to be early adopters and go down that road if we don't have to."
Could we be witnessing Speaker Bolger growing into a leader within the Republican Party?
Time will tell...
