    Our calls, tweets, emails, FB postings worked. He vetoed the horrific Obamacare Exchange that would have wiped out existing Healthcare insurances for Obamas' welfare insurance for all. :eek:(

    Fellow Patriot,

    All of your calls, emails, tweets, and Facebook messages to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie made a difference!

    Gov. Christie just announced that he has vetoed the bill that would have created an ObamaCare health insurance exchange in the state. And for that he deserves our thanks.

    Please call, email, tweet, and Facebook Gov. Christie to thank him for taking this action to protect the residents of New Jersey from this provision of ObamaCare that would replace the state's insurance market with crony collusion between bureaucrats and insurance companies, and add a load of new taxes on to Garden State taxpayers, as well.

    We should thank Gov. Christie for this veto, but we should also be mindful that he has indicated that if the Supreme Court upholds ObamaCare, he would move forward on implementing a ObamaCare exchange.

    Remind Gov. Christie that he is under no obligation to create an exchange and implement that part of ObamaCare. According to CATO's Director of Health Policy Studies Michael Cannon:

    Obamacare does not and cannot mandate that states create exchanges. Moreover, state-run exchanges do not preserve local control. They will do Washington's bidding, or else they will be commandeered or swept aside.

    Remind him that not creating an exchange doesn't put his state out of compliance with the law.

    What?

    Like there was ever a chance that fatso would do something as positive as this for NJ?

    Get real.

    Don't worry, it doesn't mandate that at all. States that don't choose to design and run their own exchanges will get a federal one operated for them by HHS, free of charge.

    Great! Then why don't all states refuse to operate one? That way they'd all be free!

    1993 - GOP Health Plan (their answer to HilaryCare) includes a Mandate.
    2006 - RomneyCare includes a Mandate.
    2008 - GOP Candidates McCain & Romney support a Mandate, Candidate Obama does not.
    2010 - Pres. Obama's Health Plan, as a concession to Republicans, includes a Mandate.
    2011 - Suddenly a Mandate is Socialism and UnConstitutional.
    2012 - Right Rank & File are totally clueless that their votes have been supporting a Mandate
    for 20 years.

    in a way, I would want a Romney/Chrisite ticket just to see Chrisite debate Biden, that would be 5 times as funny as SNL.

    A single federal exchange probably would have lower administrative costs than the 51 state-run exchanges envisioned by the ACA. And it would look a lot more like the unsuccessful legislation passed by the House in 2009.

    Maybe that is the way to go. Letting states retain control was a nice idea on paper but perhaps in practice it simply isn't wise. Still, it's probably best to at least first give the states the option to run their own marketplaces and have them indicate they'd rather have the feds do it, as Christie has done.

    Hopefully

    the SCOTUS will make the right decision and
    throw out the faux legacy of Papa Obama
