In case there are non-Texans reading this thread, check out the Kaiser Family Foundation website to see what your state is doing re ‘state-created’ (Obamacare) health care exchanges.
They are already illegal in 14 states, not including TX, and AK.
According to Michael Cannon of National Review, states are better off defaulting to a federal exchange. Some of his other points:
* States are under no obligation to create one.
* An exchange would cost its state $10-100 million/yr.
*State created does NOT mean state CONTROLLED.
*Defaulting to a federal exchange EXEMPTS a states employers from the employer mandate — a tax of $2K/yr.
* Creation of state-created exchanges assists in the creation of a “public option” that drives health care carriers out of business thorugh unfair competition.
CONTACT YOUR STATE LEGISLATORS REGARDING THIS. STATE CREATED HEALTH INS EXCHANGES MEAN HIGHER TAXES, FEWER JOBS, LESS RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.
That should read $2K per worker/yr. Sorry.
