    The Department of Health and Human Services extended the original deadline by which states need to decide whether they will be setting up their own versions of the virtual health insurance exchanges required via the auspices of ObamaCare, or allowing (making?) the federal government to do it for them, or forging some kind of partnership with the feds to get the things done --- meaning that states now have until this Friday, December 14th to report their decision to HHS. Many Republican governors have been leaning back on forth on which option to take, torn between trying to mitigate the...

    A bill that would prevent significant parts of ObamaCare from being enforced in Pennsylvania has been laid on the table of the State House.

The bill, introduced by Matthew Baker (R-68) on Jan. 19, says A law or rule shall not compel, through penalties and fines, directly or indirectly, any individual, employer or health care provider to participate...

    HB 42, a bill that would keep much of ObamaCare from being enforced in Pennsylvania, will be held in the State House Appropriations Committee until the U.S. Supreme Court rules on ObamaCare's constitutionality according to the staff of Committee Chairman Bill Adolph (R) whose 165th District includes much of Springfield and Marple townships. ObamaCare has been found, in whole or part, to be unconstitutional by lower courts. The Pennsylvania bill -- which says "law or rule shall not compel, through penalties and fines, directly or indirectly, any individual, employer or health care provider to participate in any health care system"...

    HB 42, the bill pending in the Pennsylvania House that would keep much of ObamaCare from being enforced in Pennsylvania, is being held in the Appropriations Committee until the U.S. Supreme Court rules on challenges to the law socializing American medicine, according to Appropriations Chairman Bill Adolph (R-165). The idea, according to his staff, is to simplify any tweaking that may be needed.
