GOP Governors & States Say ‘No’ To ObamaTax
38 Comments Twenty-six states are standing up to the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Affordable Care Act. Though Obamacare has been deemed Constitutional under the authority that Congress has to tax, though that was not how the law was even written, many states are declaring that they will not implement insurance exchanges or expand Medicare under Obamacare.

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker said that he is not in a hurry to implement the mandate. “We’ll look to the fall and if there is a new president and a new Senate that’s part of a Congress willing to change, that’s the next step — political,” Walker said.

Thonline reports,

Gov. Scott Walker pledged again Thursday not to phase in any parts of President Barack Obama’s signature health care reform law ahead of November’s elections even though the U.S. Supreme Court ruled it is constitutional.

Walker, a Republican, has said he holds out hope the GOP will recapture the White House and gain full control of Congress and repeal the legislation. He reiterated his stance Thursday minutes after the court released its ruling.

“While the court said it was legal, that doesn’t make it right,” Walker said at a news conference. “For us to put time and effort and resources into that doesn’t make a lot of sense.”

Interestingly enough, Fox News points out that even if states wanted to implement the provision in the AFfordable Care Act, they couldn’t and here’s why:

The provisions require staffing levels that do not exist and do not have funding, the lobbyist said, adding it would take years to iron out the specifics needed to put the law into action. “It can’t work the way it’s on the books right now. Part of that is that there is so much haze within the act,” said Robert Slayton of the Illinois Association of Health Care Underwriters.

The “haze” comes from 2,700 pages of legal language in the act. Those pages contain provisions that have yet to see the light of day. When the public and the health care industry learn the requirements of those provisions, inevitably they may conflict with the interests of the states. That means new legal challenges are sure to follow. “You’ll see a dozen more battles in the coming years … and some of them will be in the Supreme Court,” said Anup Malani, health law expert at the University of Chicago.

Slayton said the Affordable Care Act does not live up to its name and only addresses one of the problems with health care — access.

But if you ignore the Constitution anyway you don't really care....that's what we have in Washington. Representatives that are only interested in getting re-elected and filling their pockets.

Maybe with a landslide in November we can turn the disaster of Obamacare over on its head. That would speak loudly. Gotta have the Senate!!

If we can't take back the Presidency, maintain the house and take control of the senate then you can just stick a fork in us, we are done
