Article Photos: The South: A near-solid block against 'Obamacare' 1/2

FILE â In this March 15, 2013 file photo Republican governor of South Carolina Nikki Haley speaks at the 40th annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in National Harbor, Md. As more Republicans give in to President Barack Obamaâs health-care overhaul, an opposition bloc remains across the South, which includes governors who lead some of the nationâs poorest and unhealthiest states. âWe will not expand Medicaid on President Obamaâs watch. We will not expand Medicaid ever,â Haley told the audience at CPAC. Medicaid is financed mostly by Congress, with stateâs putting up match funding. Obamaâs law mandated that states open Medicaid to everyone with household income up to 133 percent of the federal poverty rate, but the Supreme Court ruled states must have a choice.
