WASHINGTON (AP) — A bipartisan group of governors working to strike compromise on hot-button policy issues took on the question of health care on Feb. 23.

Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich, in presenting the group’s blueprint for policy changes at the National Press Club, lamented that one of the country’s largest challenges seems to have been set aside by policymakers.

“It’s like health care doesn’t even matter anymore down here,” he said.
