The Rant: Jindal says Louisiana Will Not Implement "Obamacare"

One day after the United States Supreme Court ruled the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act to be constitutional, Governor Bobby Jindal said residents of his state need not worry about the law's effects. That's because, he says, Louisiana will not implement the law. In fact, he states he is banking on the next Congress to do away with the act. Jindal released the following statement regarding the state of the health care law in Louisiana:

"Come this November, we are going to elect a new President and a new Congress who will repeal and replace Obamacare. That's why we have refused to implement the Obamacare health exchange or the Medicaid expansion."
