Scott Walker will not implement state 0-care exchange!
Newstalk 1130, Milwaukee ^ | 11/15/12 | Mark Belling

Posted on 11/15/2012 4:06:45 PM PST by grumpygresh

Good news! I just heard on Newstalk 1130 AM in Milwaukee that Scott Walker would announce on Friday that WI would not implement the state exchange. I also heard that a group of GOP governors would do likewise and make a group announcement tomorrow!

The only way to fight 0-care is through the states. There is no current funding mechanism for federal exchanges unless the US House finds one.

I have an uneasy feeling that Christie-Kreme will let it pass in NJ.... I pray that I am wrong!

Looking forward to that list of states and hopefully it grows. I want to move to one of those states if my state doesn’t sign on.

Last week voters in Missouri voted it down. In essence, outlawed such health care exchanges in Missouri. Of course the Feds can and will override it...

Excellent news!

I'm confident Jan Brewer of Arizona will be part of this group too.

Alabama’s governor, Robert Bentley, stated yesterday that he would not implement the exchange. He is a former physician. I was glad to hear this announcement yesterday and hope that more states will stand up to this horrendous legislation.

Christie already vetoed the first attempt at this, earlier this year. I too am worried that he might cave upon reconsideration .... but I wonder. We are recovering from a devastating hurricane here. Putting aside for a moment the evilness of Obamacare, the simple truth is that New Jersey just cannot AFFORD to build an exchange following Hurricane Sandy. I hope Christie realizes that.

How does the state not setting up an exchange help us? We still get “taxed” if we don’t buy insurance.

Good for Scott Walker! And for Rick Perry, who did the same.

On the other hand, MY governor, Bob McDonnell, who is bleating that, oh, well, the people have spoken and we need to be flexible on raising taxes, sent a letter to Obama (along with Bobby Jindal) asking Dear Leader if they could pweeze have an extension on the deadline to figure out what they will do.

Here is the latest tally of governors refusing an exchange:

Louisiana
Wisconsin
Texas
South Carolina
Virginia
Alabama
Mississippi
Missouri
Iowa
Nebraska
Indiana

I believe Nevada and Oklahoma

Rick Scott in FL indicating he will cave

No word from Kasich or Corbett

Not sure on Michigan

There are 30 GOP governors so we should end up w perhaps 50 percent of the country. And the small states w Dem governors are going to have a Hell of a mess. DE VT NH RI CT

All a state is really doing is expanding their bureaucracy. The Feds make All the rules and regulations.

If the Federal exchange, which is funded by the Feds, is not implemented, and the state exchange is not implemented, the mandate does not apply to employers and individuals. The Fed exchanges have no funding mechanism, and spending bills must originate in the House.
However, that being said, I’m sure that the courts will weigh in. Other cases against 0-care will also be heard. But, with a little luck, this horrible law could be tied up for years until 2016 (like real ID). Meanwhile, the stupid blue states will be busy screwing themselves over with more taxes and bloated budgets. Businesses will migrate to the states that do not implement 0-care, employers will not pay the penalty, and the red states will do comparatively well.

South Carolina “should not and will not set up a state-based health care exchange.”
- South Carolina governor Nikki Haley

Similarly for Louisiana according to Gov. Bobby Jindal, Alabama according to Governor Robert Bentley, and for Kansas, Alaska, and Missouri. I’m looking forward to Wisconsin officially joining that list tomorrow.

Yes, we have an idiocracy, and idiotologues. Red states without 0-care and blue states with 0-care will create a huge contrast, even greater than right to work vs forced unionization. WE NEED polarization to prove to the idiocrats that our system works better than theirs!

That’s just what I was gonna say. In an article I read, Walker stated “”Why do I want to take on the potential risk to my taxpayers if I don’t really have any true authority about what’s going to happen?”

So he’d have more if the Fed’s come in?

The biggest part of the Obamacare decision may end up being the part that said, by a 7-2 vote (including Obama's Justices), that the States could not be coerced into implementing the federal exchanges.

Only 16 States and D.C. have implemented the exchanges. Most States are not going to help the Liberal Messiah conquer the health care industry.

Tennessee’s GOP Governor Haslam is leaning towards creating a state exchange. He is not listening to his constituents pleas to not create them and do nothing. He will run for re-election in two years. We will remember.

This is a great idea.

Democrats have not passed a budget for three years.

So this is perfectly legitimate. For at least 3 years.

And that’s just playing Dem rules.

No problem at all.

I think it, also, will affect real estate sales depending the state you live in. Not sure many will want to set down roots in a state that already has that strike against it. Renting would be a better option. I certainly can see the USA state vs. the socialist state prospering.
