Republican governors and GOP-dominated state legislatures were united in opposing President Obama's health care law, but now that it's in place, they are far more divided over how far to go in complying with it, especially with the U.S. Supreme Court poised to rule on the law's constitutionality.
Love it or hate it, states across the country are facing a looming dilemma over whether to get to work implementing a key component of President Obama's massive health care overhaul.
"I don't know that Republican states are actually holding back so much as they are keeping all their options open," Ms. Smith said. "I think in addition to a mad scramble, you will also see a redoubling of efforts to keep the feds out."
