Obamacare still vulnerable?

Thought this deserved it's own thread. Check it out...

Quote:
Finally, rejecting an exchange reduces the federal deficit. Obamacare offers its deficit-financed subsidies to private health insurers only through state-created exchanges. If all states declined, federal deficits would fall by roughly $700 billion over ten years.

For similar reasons, states should decline to implement Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion. The Supreme Court gave states that option. All states should exercise it.


cont...Obamacare Is Still Vulnerable - Michael F. Cannon - National Review Online
This might be slim hope, but I think most of us recognize at this point that Boehner's in no position to fight on, having received no cover from the people after this election. Clearly, John Roberts is a ****ing lunatic... no help there. But can our governors and state legislatures put such a hurtin' on this thing so as to make it untenable?

Read the whole article. For the sake of fair use, I just pulled you out one tasty bit. But it seems to me that if the States refuse to set up these exchanges and refuse to expand Medicaid, like Virginia's Bob McDonnell has said he'll do, it's going to be a rough row to hoe in Obamaland. And as you read down the article, these governors do appear to have good political cover as this thing chews such great holes in their budgets. More than half the States rose up to challenge it already. Will they follow through? Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register to forum by clicking here to see images.

Here's another article. It's a little older, but gives a bit more of the lay of the land:

Quote:

Most of us view Obamacare as a national fight, but over the next few months we will have the opportunity to disrupt this travesty on a local level. Governors and state legislators can refuse to expand the Medicaid rolls as prescribed under Obamacare, pursuant to the Supreme Court’s decision. Moreover, there is no mechanism in place to prevent them from blocking the establishment of the healthcare exchanges before the law is set to take effect 2014.

Remember that although we lack control over the federal government, we have full control over 23 state governments (governor +both chambers of the legislature). In total, there are 29 GOP governors and 39 states where we have control of at least one branch of government. We must push those governors and state legislators to block implementation of any aspect of Obamacare. The 29 governors could easily bock it simply by doing nothing.

Kentucky Republicans Seek to Block Implementation of Obamacare

RESIZE: AAA

Most of us view Obamacare as a national fight, but over the next few months we will have the opportunity to disrupt this travesty on a local level. Governors and state legislators can refuse to expand the Medicaid rolls as prescribed under Obamacare, pursuant to the Supreme Court痴 decision. Moreover, there is no mechanism in place to prevent them from blocking the establishment of the healthcare exchanges before the law is set to take effect 2014.

Remember that although we lack control over the federal government, we have full control over 23 state governments (governor +both chambers of the legislature). In total, there are 29 GOP governors and 39 states where we have control of at least one branch of government. We must push those governors and state legislators to block implementation of any aspect of Obamacare. The 29 governors could easily bock it simply by doing nothing.

cont... Kentucky Republicans Seek to Block Implementation of Obamacare | RedState
Yep - it will be up to the Tea Party/Koch brothers to make sure that disinformation sways all those state's voters not to expel their governors and reps for dragging their heels when the residents of the other states have an easier time with their health care. Shouldn't be that hard, right?

Obstinance to the bitter end, huh?

Yeah, it does. 'Cause they're taking it anyway. The feds are in control of the exchanges regardless of whether or not they're set up by the states. And if you actually read the article, it makes better fiscal sense to not set them up.

The ONLY time OBAMACARE is in trouble--is in 2016 after Obama is out of office--and all those admirer's get taxed 8% for it.

No, the feds don't control the exchanges if a state wants to design and build their own. Pretending otherwise now when states should be figuring out what they want their exchanges to look like is going to get some of these red states in an awkward spot philosophically come 2014-15.

States don't have printing presses. They actually have to mind the budget, and no money means no money. The feds say they'll pay for the exchanges in 2014, but after that the states are supposed to absorb the expense. Why would they do that when they'd have to cut funding for other projects and services? They're not going to have the luxury of spending money they don't have. It's going to come out of schools, roads, and fire houses.

So, no. I don't think they've got much political capital at risk. Once they say, we're either going to fire this many teachers and cops or we're going to take a pass at creating Obama's insurance exchange.. that's a pretty clear fiscal choice.

Maybe if they'd bothered to read the whole thing they'd have found the loopholes. And since they didn't... there's no reason why we shouldn't exploit these built-in faults. And Democrats don't get to pass any legislation they want these days. They don't have both houses anymore.

It's not a matter of believing a declarative sentence Cannon makes in his quixotic quest to get states to cede autonomy over their markets to the feds. It's a matter of understanding the options states have been and are (or should be, in the case of the laggards) exploring as they design exchanges customized to their preferences, their culture, their market conditions, and their political/philosophical inclinations.

If you prefer a federal exchange, great. Personally, in my state, I don't. I would much prefer we design our own exchange than default to a federal option.

I am saying it again--Obamacare is only threatened with those that voted for Obama who will have to pay 8% of their gross income for it-and that won't happen until AFTER he leaves office or in 2016. They thought the rich were going to pay for it--LOL.
