Scott Walker: Wisconsin Won't Launch Obamacare
Newsmax ^ | Sunday, 01 Jul 2012 03:25 PM

Calling Obamacare a massive tax increase, Republican Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said Sunday he is going to wait before implementing health-insurance exchanges in his state.

“We’re going to wait,” Walker said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “For people here in Wisconsin and plenty of other states across the country, we want to put the power back in the hands of the people at the state and the local level, not be driven by a federal mandate.”

He said he believes in a free-market alternative to the government-funded health-insurance program upheld last week by the Supreme Court. …

Let’s try this again. The Feds will do it. The statute permits the Feds to just come in and run it all. I would rather have the State than the Feds do it. (Not stating the obvious of wishing it wasn’t going to be done at all).

Georgie would've stayed silent, but he adores the klintons too much to let Hussein slide.

Yeah, but think of the Governor's position. The states have to match the Federal money. Walker doesn't want to increase taxes to pay for the state's share.

The bandit Obama/Holder/etc regime does not obey laws. Why should anyone else obey laws?

ObamaKare is set up to attract people into Mediaid for the next two years (anyone under 400% of federal poverty!) and the feds (us or the Chinese, depending on how you look at it)will be paying the tab for that. Then, in year three, the state is handed the whole mess. Some predictions are that the amount will be greater than current state budgets.
Every governor not falling for this needs our support. The pressure and disinformation will be astounding.

It is my understanding that Obamacare is going to rob Medicare to pay for Medicaid.

While I'm thrilled to see Walker (and FL, LA and KS, apparently)stand his ground, I'm wondering if it's more feel-good speak than reality.

Can the states really opt out of this atrocity?

If so, whey aren't the conservative pundits making more of it as a realistic option?

Great point!!! What's sauce for the gander, is sauce for the goose. When they don't obey many laws, then they can't use laws as a way to hit us over the head. Laws either exist across the board, or they don't exist at all.

How would it be if we played in a sports game, and we followed all the rules, but the other team did whatever they wanted to do, which was play real nasty. Obviously they would totally roll over us and win. When they play without rules, then essentially, as long as they are in control, there are no rules. If we play by nonexistent rules, then we go down.

We still must do what we must before The LORD, in a morale way, as He is our true leader, but He doesn't expect us to unnecessarily lay down and be rolled over. We are to be as wise as a serpent, and as gentle as a dove. Too often we forget the "wise as a serpent" part. We have to start dealing with the opposition for what they really are, which is slimy, nasty, unscrupulous and highly wicked.

Does the ability to withdraw from Medicaide negate Obama care?

Mark Levin had a great suggestion on his radio program Friday....if Scott Walker is agreeable to it, he would be the BEST candidate for Speaker of the House.

Boozy Boehner and Mumbles McConnell are useless, have no fight in them, and do NOTHING to further the cause of conservative America. They have to GO. Scott has the fire in his belly to fight and WIN, he's not afraid, he is straightforward, has political savvy, looks you in the eye and informs you as to what he stands for, how he is going about achieving what he believes in, doesn't need a teleprompter, has common sense, good organizational skills, is cool under fire, is conservative and he LOVES this country...he is NOT the go along to get along type of useless politician as are Boehner and McConnell, to name but two. There is no whiff of scandal associated with his name. He is a good man, if his win in the down and dirty fight in Wisconsin is any indication. Are there any impediments to this idea, and does he have a chance?

Ahem...Scott Walker has a job to do in Wisconsin. He is NOT running for Congress. He would have to be a member of Congress to be elected Speaker of the House. Levin is delusional.

Yes to the first two, no to the last two assertions.
