Involuntary insurance? Pay for others' elective procedures?

Florida, Wisconsin, Alaska, Texas, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, and 19 other states say they will not ratify "Obamacare." 

Why?

Because it is unfair, too costly, burdensome, exclusionary, and rations health care to only the highest power elite.  It was ostensibly intended to bring affordable health care to everyone but now it becomes clear that it was never intended to do so.

 

Involuntary insurance?  Pay for others' elective procedures?



WASHINGTON, July 1 (Reuters) - 27 States will not implement two provisions of the U.S. healthcare law involving an expansion of Medicaid excluding the poor and creation of a private insurance exchange, Governor Rick Scott of Florida said on Sunday.

Wisconsin and Louisiana opted out of the two provisions last week in the wake of the Supreme Court decision upholding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.


In a statement, the Florida governor said the healthcare law would not aid economic growth in his state, "And since Florida is legally allowed to opt out, that's the right decision for our citizens."

Scott said, "Expansion of Medicaid, which provides healthcare for the poor, would cost $1.9 billion while the state has other health programs in place. Premiums would rise on the insurance exchange.  Our poorest simply cannot afford costly duplicate coverage which would be required.  This negates the whole purpose of this law."

If states do not create insurance exchanges, the federal government says it will set them up. The exchanges are intended to extend health coverage to an additional 16 million people. The Kaiser Family Foundation says 17 states have made no significant progress toward an exchange or rejected the idea. (Reporting By Charles Abbott; Editing by Eric Walsh).

Rocmike aka American Patriot you have been stealing peoples monikers and posting under them for a long time. You have also used your own aliases monikers and claimed someone stole them to take the heat off of you. Once a loser always a loser. You stole froggies moniker.

More incoherent ranting from the inane left.  These people really are boring.

I am very happy to see so many states have said not gonna do it...........for now.  It is not actually due to be implemented until 2014 before then we could possibly have a new president and a new Senate.  I agree they should not jump into this and though questioning Justice Roberts for crossing over to the Libs there is one redeeming factor and that is states cannot be punished for refusing the Medicaid part of the bill.  This is good because that means there will not be millions of new people on the take at the espense of the tax payers.

None of the states including Florida per Scott will refuse to abide by the Federal Law in 2014 and Scott has said as much.  It only makes sense to wait and see what will happen.

One would think the addition of the 16,000 IRS would bring the fact home this is indeed a tax.  Those college students living at home with their parents, not being able to find a job will be taxed by the penalty if they have no insurance.  If they have no jobs then the burden will naturally fall onto their parents.  There is so much more that if implemented people will begin to be affected by this watching their neighbors, friends and family being pushed by the IRS and put into very bad positions.

I read the employers part of the bill and the individual responsibilities of each person and I was shocked at what I saw and amazed that just now people are addressing this along with the other really disasterous parts of this horrible bill that encompasses in its' thousands of pages things none of you will like because it has nothing to do with insurance and everything to do with control of your lives and property.

Look to what happens if you or someone you know does not pay their taxes.  We are talking lose of property within your home and assets you own.  Anything of value you have will be dived into, investigated and confiscated to pay the tax you owe.  You know it even includes jailtime which was part of the original bill til people screamed but it still remains a possibility because we are talking not being able to pay a tax.

I believe if Obama is re-elected that he will be Impeached for sure.  We already have enough to do that and it should have been done when he set his Czars into place.  Everyone has held their tongues in check and even Europe has questioned why he has not been Impeached they do not understand our PC.  However this will not hold water forever especially if Obama is re-elected or if 2014 roles around and people have the glaze removed from their eyes related to Obamacare.

Lady Darko, you and I are not the only ones to object to Obamacare.  When entire State Legislatures meet in joint session and have actually read this insane thing, they know what they are doing.  Governor Walker's arguments against Obamacare were the most convincing. 

In summary, "This mess benefits big business that is a little on the dirty side of absolutely corrupt, but it does nothing for the people it wrecks.  We just can't afford another hideous blunder like that mess Obama made of our national budget.  Now we are fighting for our national survival and Obama still thinks he is God . . .."

Alas, we still have naive leftists, whose ignorance is never the same as bliss.

Rocmike aka Bill aka Ladydarko no matter how many of your aliases object to the health care law it is still coming from 1 insane lonely right wing hate monger.

Are these short-sighted Governors going to OBSTRUCT our healthcare reforms?  Once again, partisan politics is impeding American government.  If anyone likes the current state of our health care system, that is all you will ever get from Republicans.

Courteous, yet lively debate, keeps the cobwebs from forming and misinformation as well.

Rocmike aka Yechiel nice life you have led Julius Watler.
