GOP Governors Health Care

FILE-- In this July 1, 2013 file photo, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, center, joins Beaumont Health System President and CEO Gene Michalski, left, and Dr. Jeffrey Ditkoff at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Mich., to discuss the Healthy Michigan plan. As the GOP in Washington repeatedly calls for an Obamacare repeal, Republican governors in traditionally swing-voting states are grudgingly bowing to reality _ that the president's health care overhaul is the law of the land and, almost certainly, here to stay. Their reluctant acceptance is based on what they call financial prudence and what appears to be political necessity. (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio, File)
