President Barack Obama compromised with unhappy governors Monday by offering states the ability to design their own health care plans under specific guidelines.
Almost half of the states want to overturn Obama's health care bill, the Affordable Care Act. The president said he will listen to governors' plans and, if satisfactory, he will compromise and use their ideas.
Obama moved the deadline of the new plan submissions up three years to 2014. Plans must be at least as comprehensive, as affordable, and provide coverage for as many people as Obama's original bill would have, CNN reported.
Obama criticized Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker by saying he disapproved of balancing budgets by stripping unions of their rights and curbing employee's budgets, ABC News reported.
