Red State Doubles Down on Crazy, re: Obamacare

http://www.redstate.com/2012/11/11/dear-conservative-organizations/

The bold parts are mine. Have these people learned nothing?!?

Rumors are swirling that many Republican Governors are thinking of going wobbly on setting up state level healthcare exchanges to comply with Obamacare, instead of forcing the federal government to set up a federal exchange.

The deadline to notify Washington is November 16, 2012.

Michael Cannon has an excellent must read on why no state should do so.

Further, the Republican Party controls 30 Governors’ Mansions.

Most importantly, as Michael Cannon notes, “defaulting to a federal exchange exempts a state’s employers from the employer mandate.”

I think it is incumbent on each and every conservative and conservative organization, with this deadline upon us, to make a very simple pledge:

We will not support the re-election of any Republican Governor who creates a healthcare exchange in his or her state. Further, we will oppose for the nomination to the Presidency, any Republican who creates a healthcare exchange in his or her state.

In fact, I will go first.

Should any Republican Governor set up a health care exchange in his or her state, I’ll support their primary challenger and I sure will not support him or her for President in 2016.

Now it is your turn.

2. The horrors of regulated private health insurance!

Everywhere anything like obamacare has been tried, it worked reasonably well given its inherent limitations, increased access to healthcare, and kept costs in line. I fully understand their dismay.

6. They will follow Governor Heineman's strategy.

Let people choose from the highest deductible, and lowest coverage policies from insurance companies.

10. Please. These red state jackasses won't accept the relatively mild ACA. They will go ape-shit

opposing Single Payer. I don't give a shit about what they think, but I still feel that progressives must not overreach and scare people that think the right is fucked and are willing to move to Single Payer in several proven steps. Logic is needed here.

8. Excellent plan. Goes directly at the hearts of the 47%.

Watching an evil political party die is entertaining.
