Michigan governor won’t join other GOP governors in fighting for repeal of healthcare reform
At the end of a press conference Wednesday afternoon Gov. Rick Snyder was asked why he did not join other Republican governors in signing his approval to pursue a repeal of President Obama’s Federal Healthcare Reform. Snyder answered saying he was not elected to address national concerns.
“I’m focused on Michigan just as I’ve said many times, my role is not to be a large advocate on the national scale I was hired to be governor of Michigan. We’re focused on Michigan issues,” said Snyder to the media. “We’re doing a major message in September on health and wellness and in terms of focus right now it’s education, government reform and all the other good activities in partnership with the legislature and we’ll be more active on health and wellness in September.”
