As was expected, the Republicans won the party and the class warfare issue in the House's Health and Welfare committee , giving Governor Bobby Jindal a victory over the Democrats' attempt to accept Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act's expansion. The vote, an involuntary deferrment, was on party lines 11-8. One of the key issues dominating the discussion was whether more citizens of Louisiana would be dependent upon the government, should the State of Louisiana accept the Medicaid provision. Jindal has refused to accept the Medicaid expansion. Other bills on the issue are up for future consideration.
