CARSON CITY, NV – Governor Brian Sandoval today issued the following statement after President Obama announced the federal government will not enforce selected portions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA):

“I opposed Obamacare from its inception. However, when the U.S. Supreme Court upheld it, every state and every American was forced to abide by it. As a state, Nevada’s only choice was whether to let the federal government control the process or manage the process ourselves. We rightly opted for the latter. Now, despite our best efforts to comply with this ill-conceived law, the failure at the federal level has made this effort in Nevada significantly more difficult or even impossible.

“Without a doubt, the President’s actions this week are a direct acknowledgement that the law is unworkable. What’s more, the announcement yesterday does not fix any problems and only adds more confusion. I strongly urge the President and Congress to reconsider this law.”

You are another Big Republican sissy. Government is supposed to be For the People not against them. You have over 1/2 million people uninsured in this state and you can't figure out how to make this work. Why don't you go visit Gov. Jerry Brown (D) next door in California and figure out how he makes it work there instead of whining. Jeez .................

Thank You. This law has been a train wreck from the start and only the first car's derailed this week. It has only begun to crash.
