OKLAHOMA CITY — Twelve U.S. senators and 61 U.S. representatives have written every governor, including Oklahoma’s Mary Fallin, asking them to oppose implementation of health-care exchanges under the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
This move occurred after the U.S. Supreme Court’s controversial ruling last week that upheld the national health-care law.
Grassroots activists in Oklahoma, meanwhile, are organizing a rally Saturday at the state Capitol.
Republican U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn joined several colleagues in signing the letter, which was distributed Monday.
Few governors have moved to stall the law’s implementation until after the November general election, including Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, Bob McConnell of Virginia and Rick Scott of Florida.
