Jindal: No need to expand Medicaid since Obamacare will be effective

There you have it, folks.  Gov. Jindal finally gives a legitimate reason for why he won't expand Medicaid eligibility.  You see, contrary to all of his previous arguments against healthcare reform, the Governor argues that Obamacare WILL be effective in reducing the number of uninsured Americans.  See Argument #4 in this article:
Without expanding Medicaid, and once eligible people are enrolled into healthcare exchanges set up by the federal government, there will be less than six percent of Louisianians without health insurance. That's why the state is focused on implementing public-private partnerships with charity hospitals across the state to expand access.
