HEALTH CARE DECISION — Jews React: One LA community organizer
Skip Koenig, a Temple Judea congregant and co-chair of the community organizing group One LA’s health strategy team. Koenig said he is “thrilled” and “excited” about the court’s decision to uphold the mandate that requires all Americans to buy health insurance.
But “I’m not quite sure what the full impact is going to be on the …part of the decision where they said states could not be compelled to participate in the Medicaid expansion,” he said. “That’s one of the things that One LA will be working closely with our elected officials [on],” he said.
