MD Gov. O'Malley: Trans-Vaginal Probes The Only GOP Health Mandate

In a press conference call on Friday, Gov. Martin O'Malley (MD), chairman of the Democratic Governors Association, referred to Republican governors' opposition to the Affordable Care Act's mandate for the states. O'Malley noted that there is only one health-related mandate that's fine with them:

"I suppose some of our colleagues want to get out of the union — by that I mean the United States,” he said, when asked if he expected Republican governors to try to get around the ObamaCare mandate that states set up health care exchanges.

Later on the call, O'Malley took a shot at Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell with respect to Republican opposition to the individual mandate, saying "The only health care mandate they embrace are trans-vaginal probes for women."
