It’s a Lie
It’s a lie. And the media and politicians just keep repeating it.
They say we have to set up an ObamaCare Exchange in our state or the Federal Government will have complete control over your health care.
The truth is, if our state sets up an ObamaCare Exchange, the Federal Government will have complete control over your health care.
ObamaCare dictates that each state set up what is known as a Health Insurance Exchange. It is through the exchange that the individual mandate to purchase insurance will be enforced.
ObamaCare stipulates that,
“An Exchange may not establish rules that conflict with or prevent the application of regulations promulgated by the Secretary [of Health and Human Services (HHS)].”
In a state-created exchange:
The Federal Government determines “Qualified Plans”
The minimum essential benefits that must be included in a plan is determined by HHS
HHS establishes the criteria for certification of health plans
Only HHS-approved plans may be sold in the exchange
The HHS Secretary and the General Accounting Office will have continuing oversight of the exchanges
Does that sound like the state will have any authority over health care decisions?
Call me crazy, but doing exactly what the feds are telling you to do does not portray a state that is in control of anything. And it does not instill confidence that the state will resist continuing federal assaults on our sovereignty.
Politicians from both sides of the aisle want you to believe that setting up the exchange allows them to retain state authority. As shown above, the truth is quite different.

If our legislators refuse to stand up to the Federal Government and move forward to create an exchange, how can we trust them to take a stand after the fact?
By design, there is no administrative flexibility in an exchange, and HHS will make all pertinent decisions.
Setting up the exchange eliminates free market health care, politely opens the door to the feds, and obediently surrenders state sovereignty.
If we don’t speak up now, we will have government-run health care and we will be stuck with ObamaCare for a very long time.
