Perry blasts Obama for health law changes

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Gov. Rick Perry is predictably panning President Barack Obama's reversing course and calling for canceled health insurance policies to be reinstated under the new health law.

The Republican on Thursday blasted Obama for "cavalierly instructing states to ignore federal law."

Perry called Obama reckless and said he was forcing states and insurance companies to correct the "massive problem his signature law has created for millions of Americans."

The governor added: "Obamacare is an abject failure." He similarly savaged the law when Obama visited Dallas last week.

Texas has the highest rate of uninsured Americans, but Perry won't expand Medicaid for the working poor under the law.

The state also refused to create its own exchanges, forcing Texans to use the problem-plagued federal website to enroll for private health insurance.
