Scott Walker to Obama: States Won’t Bail You Out After Obamacare Ruling

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says states should not bolster Obamacare in any way if the Supreme Court decides to strike down the law’s subsidies in at least 34 states.

The likely GOP presidential candidate said the White House will be squarely to blame if the justices say the wording of the Affordable Care Act limited the tax credits to the handful of states that set up their own insurance exchanges.

In fact, he said Mr. Obama should “admit his failure” and “do the right thing” by repealing his own law and working with congressional Republicans to replace it.

“The decision will be a turning point,” Mr. Walker wrote in an op-ed for CNN. “States didn’t create this problem, Washington did. Governors across the country have been clear: If the Supreme Court strikes down the Obama executive overreach, we will not bail out Obama at the expense of the American people. We will not set up state exchanges under the rules of Obamacare.”
