I have a question about the usage of the verb "resist". According to the usage examples of some dictionary:
-He was charged with resisting arrest.
-Many people resisted the efforts of lawmakers to raise taxes.
So, "resist" should be used with some activity (both "arrest" and "efforts" are activities). But then, I saw this:
But even some supporters of the law dispute that the establishment of the health insurance exchanges is on schedule, especially since progress varies by state and some Republican-led states are resisting the health care law and withholding resources for putting it into effect.
Health care law is not an activity. So, "resisting the health care law" seems off. Would a rewrite:
...some Republican-led states are resisting the implementation of the health care law...
