How does the state not setting up an exchange help us? We still get “taxed” if we don’t buy insurance.
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.
It doesn’t help a state. It means the feds will set up their healthcare
