Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback says he wont support Kansas Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praegers grant application to create a state-federal partnership health insurance exchange.
The exchange is an online marketplace where individuals can by health insurance policies.
A partnership is one of three choices for states under the federal health reform law. States could also choose to establish their own exchanges or let the federal government do it for them.

Yes. If that doesn’t work. Nullification is the next step.
Well, glad somebody is fighting it since Boehner became a Quisling.
I’m not going to lie, I’m rather demoralized at our prospects of fighting another four years with the House quitting on us.
word is Scott Walker (wi) will follow this path. They are not manditory.
No, don’t feel demoralized. This is good. Let the states assert their 10th Amendment rights. I think if you look at the election results you’ll see a befuddled electorate. They don’t trust either side and don’t understand all the issues.
They don’t want debt or deflation or inflation or high interest rates and they don’t want to pay for their entitlements and government goodies, but the also don’t want to lose them. In the face of all that they voted status quo. If governors assert themselves they’ll come off winners. Who is closer to the people their governor or the President way off in DCland?
I don't know that they did. This is the current House Majority Leadership speaking...there will be a new Congress seated in January.
If they reelect Boehner, especially after the latest ObamaCare comment, I'll join you in your depression.
They will, count on it. (IMHO, of course.)
There is also a state constitution amendment being pushed to ignore Obamacare in Kansas. Our local longtime (dem) rep is looking at a 18 vote diff forcing counting provisional ballots on Monday. He opposed the amendment and was branded a friend of Barak.
The ONLY way Boehner will lose the Senate Majority Leader job is if there is a big scandal that he covered up or perceived to have covered up OR he loses the House to the Democrats.....or of course if he retires. But now that I think about it Nancy Pelosi is STILL Minority Leader so maybe Boehner is in the job until he wants to leave...
The blowback will come when full time workers become part-time or laid off or companies opt for the crappy health care option. Try blaming that on Bush!
My own view, precisely.
When I was in high school, we were taught that nullification was a bad thing, now, I am starting to think that it may be the was of the best ways to preserve the Republic.
...to read...one of the best ways....

Mary Fallin, the RINO governor of OK, better get with it. She’s been silent so far about her intentions. She’s another one who got the nomination because it was “her turn”.
And there are many more! But these are some from just the past 48 hours.
Liberals are void of insights.
Can ‘WeThePeople’ have a say in who they re-elect with emails/fax/calling?
I want to move to Kansas or Texas and get away from being smothered by liberals in dark blue King County Washington.
The libs are so thick here it is like the Pods (Invasion of the Body Snatchers) have completely taken over.
Governor Deal of Georgia has said he is leaning against support of the federal health exchange as well.We will let him know our thoughts on this issue shortly,very shortly.
Kind of OT: Is Governor Sam Brownback, still, a supporter of amnesty for illegal immigrants?
Absolutely, if you have an honest Congressman (non RINO/RAT) it is their obligation to represent you in the "People's House".
Get an organized effort of Republicans to lobby YOUR Rep. You have the best chance with hand written letters, but you can double-down with e-mails and follow up phone calls.
Since they are your friend/ally, don't threaten them, but politely ask for a change in leadership, or ask who else is running for the positions. Start a dialogue with them.
If they want your votes again, they will respond or comply.
Employ The Scotty Principle: “The more they overthink the plumbing, the easier it is to stop up the drain.”
Woo-hoo!!! How is the employment situation in Kansas? I’d consider moving there, even if it is the gateway to the Emerald City! :)
This is the road to a true single payer system.
If the state doesn’t establish an exchange, the residents of that state will go into the federal government’s exchange. Meaning the state will lose all control of health care.
By 2016, everyone will be getting their health insurance through an exchange—either a state or federal exchange. ObamaCare will have its tentacles too far into the system to ever be undone. That’s just the way it is. We’re stuck.
2012 was our only chance to undo it. We lost, by running a candidate nobody believed would actually repeal ObamaCare if elected.
You are wrong.
The States should resist at every level.
Brownback is empowered by his strong conservative Senate and House majorities. Go Governor! The Rats ran against you this time and lost! My House District threw out a entrenched incumbent so-called conservative Democrat who was really a big government, high tax, big spending, union-backed liberal. We replaced him with a REAL conservative Republican. My mailbox over flowed the last 6 weeks with Democrat ads attacking Sam Brownback’s tax cuts.
Obama has a plan:
1.) Get stupid Republicans to raise taxes
2.) Bash those Republicans, in the next election, for “raising taxes”!
I thought I read recently that the SCOTUS agreed to rule on *another* challenge to OsamaObamaCare? Did I imagine this?
Daniels and Pence in Indiana are doing the same thing.
I believe it relates to something like since the bill originated in the Senate, and it has been deemed a “tax” from the SCOTUS ruling that it is unconstitutional since financial bills have to originate in the House. I’m sure I mucked up the understanding a bit, and hopefully, someone else can add clarification.
Both good man for sure...I like Palin/Brownback or Palin/Rubio
I have spoke to several people, many that are just plain stupid and voted for Obama that don't realize Obamacare has always been the first step toward a single payer system— and it's already starting.
I'm not going to argue over public vs private sector benefits here, but suffice it to say more then one small city in upstate NY has told their police and firefighters health insurance is on the table for upcoming contract negotiations in 2014 and 2015. After all, these cities employees can just use the health exchanges/Obamacare, and don't need city supplied health benefits that are in their contract.
Same thing is happening in the private sector, where employers will just not be able to provide private health insurance.
Needless to say, there may be a joining of public sector and private sector employees in a health care revolt. These smaller city and private sector employees were never given any waivers. And when you combine these small city public sector employees together all over the country that realize (no matter what your opinion of them) that their union helped support Obama and his policies screwed them over, you just may have a union revolt as well.
I'm not for HUGE public sector benefits. But I'll relish the day these employees turn on their unions that supposedly “support” them. And together with all the private sector people that will get screwed, it will be an all-out free for all. I just wish they would have realized this before the election! Also, many public sector workers don't even realize they even have so-called "Cadillac" health insurance plans and all that entails. So even if they keep their benefits, they're penalized.
