House GOP puts up a fight on O’Malley’s Obamacare bill
As I predicted last week, the GOP opposition to the measure in the House of Delegates was much more strident that that put up by Republicans leaders in the state Senate.
Tuesday’s House of Delegates vote was along party lines with all but one of the House Republicans voting against a bill they considered a bailout of the O’Malley administration’s bureaucratic failures. Del. Warren Miller (R-Howard) argued on his Facebook page that “the state has wasted $170,000,000 on this, the HGO chair just told us this blank check (ie bill) might cost Marylanders another $100,000,000, but isn’t really sure what it will cost.” Other House Republicans echoed the sentiment that the costs of the legislation were unknown and would likely only worsen what was already a fiasco.
