Jindal Suggests Obamacare as a Place to Cut Federal Spending

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal has one idea to help avoid the looming sequester: Use Obamacare.

The Republican governor said delaying the expansion of Medicaid and delaying the health care exchanges created under the Affordable Care Act would help find the funds to offset the coming automatic budget cuts.

“You could save tens of billions of dollars there … and you're not even cutting a program that's started yet,” Jindal argued Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “Just delay it for a few years.”
