I have begun to second guess my vote. Especially if he and the Republicans go through with the plan to stop the Medicaid expansion and prohibit the private insurance exchange.
He said he was all about creating jobs right?
A state-commissioned study determined that Medicaid expansion would create 23,000 jobs through 2021, along with another 23,000 spin-off positions, and inject more than $1 billion into the state’s economy.
Without the money, the state’s hospitals may face job losses because of the cost of charity care that would likely decrease if more people are insured. Don Dalton, a N.C. Hospitals Association spokesman, said charity care and unpaid bills amounted to $1.6 billion in 2011.

It is also estimated that it would increase revenue by as much as 500 million dollars.
All this is is a governor proving himself to be another guy on his knees sucking the party's dick instead of doing what is right for the state of NC.
Hopefully he will wake up like Gov. Scott did down in Florida and agree to do these important things even if they did come from the Obama administration.
And lets be honest, this is 100% about Obama and not the provisions of Obamacare itself.
