Nancy Pelosi famously said, “we must pass the (health care) law in order to find out what is in the law.”
Now that ObamaCare is law, the mysteries contained within are slowly coming to light.
While there is reason to hope that ObamaCare will be overturned by the Supreme Court, our state is taking steps to cave in to the Obama administration's demands.
In order to institute the infamous "Individual Mandate," ObamaCare bribes each state to set up what is known as a Health Insurance Exchange.
Without a state-created exchange, the individual mandate cannot be enforced.
As in all bureaucracies, there are some major downfalls, not the least of which is the anticipated spike in the cost of insurance.
Establishing a state Health Insurance Exchange as dictated by ObamaCare requires complete submission to Federal Government regulations and the loss of state sovereignty over all health care issues. The law stipulates that:
“An Exchange may not establish rules that conflict with or prevent the application of regulations promulgated by the Secretary ”
The Federal Government will dictate such things as:
- The Insurance providers that may participate
- Minimum coverage that must be offered—potentially including elective procedures like breast augmentation and facelifts
- How the exchange is run
I could go on, but I’m certain you recognize the theme. The Federal Government will control every aspect of our health care.
Our state has already accepted over $10 million to set up the exchange!
Merely accepting and spending federal funds requires absolute obedience to federal government regulations, and the loss of state sovereignty.
A key responsibility of state officials is to protect our sovereignty, yet some of our legislators are saying that if ObamaCare is not overturned, they will betray their duty and submissively comply with the dictates of the law.
The Chair of the House Health Policy Committee, Rep. Gail HAINES (R-Waterford), stated her intention to betray that duty in a news article stating, "We hope the Affordable Care Act is deemed unconstitutional, but until that happens, we must prepare to put an exchange in place."
And like obedient little children, these turncoats expect you to forget their empty promises, ignore their campaign rhetoric, and blame the Federal Government for all of the many losses you will suffer as a result.

There are over 1 billion reasons why some states are establishing these exchanges—and each reason has a dollar sign attached.
With over $1 billion at stake, and more than $700 million already sent to complicit states, it’s easy to understand why greedy politicians have their hands out before the court can rule. These funds are being used all over the country to enrich political allies and the well-connected.
Millions of your taxpayer dollars are being wasted, and you are footing the bill while they steal your freedoms. Those hundreds of millions will never be returned to our treasury—unless you and I do something to force the issue now.
Tell your legislators that even if the Supreme Court fails to overturn ObamaCare, you expect them to protect your rights and jealously guard our state sovereignty by refusing to establish a state exchange.
