    Sounds like another GOP delay tactic to me. Like it or not, Obamacare begins EXACTLY one year from today; open enrollment will be in October. The Supreme Court won't stop it, and apparently neither will the "fiscal cliff"; the Ledge has four more years (till the 2017 session) to either fund Medicaid for 2018 or bail out. Action is needed for the Medicaid expansion THIS session -- NOT in a special session.
