More Federal Health Care Money Headed To Idaho

Federal officials are awarding more money to help states carry out President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. The surprise? The list includes seven states, including Idaho, suing to overturn the landmark law. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced Tuesday that 13 states will split grants totaling nearly $220 million to set up health insurance exchanges. Millions of uninsured Americans will be able to buy private coverage through these online supermarkets starting in 2014. Despite opponents’ rhetoric, some states led by conservatives are hedging their health overhaul bets. The seven getting money and also suing are: Alabama, Arizona, Idaho, Iowa, Maine, Michigan and Nebraska. Three other plaintiffs — Indiana, Mississippi and Nevada — previously got funding. Also receiving grants Tuesday were Delaware, Hawaii, New Mexico, Rhode Island, Tennessee and Vermont.
