Obamacare and State's Rights

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF
Many conservatives and people of faith felt the sting of the election. It hurt to see nearly every biblical value on the ballot defeated, not only in Washington, but across the country.

And 4 more years of the most socialistic, far left secularist president in anyones memory, strikes terror in the heart of decent people.

However, there are a couple of positives.

Following the election, 30 of the 50 governors are now Republican. Mostly, I'm told, conservative.

These governors have a significant opportunity in regard to how Obamacare is administrated in their state.

While we have been led to believe otherwise, the administration of Obamacare will go through the governor's office of each state.

How each governor chooses to administrate it will set a marked course for their state both culturally and economically.

Some states will be "trapped" in a relationship with the federal government that will both diminish the livability and the economy of their state, while others will reject the model being advocated by Obama's government and create an expanding economic environment and an improving heath care environment in the state.

These decisions are presently in play during 2013 and every citizen must be informed.

Here's how it works:

Ken Klukowski has written an excellent article laying out the facts. His article "Obamacare Will Create Two America's For Health Care" is a must read.

He explains what freedoms states actually have in how Obamacare is administered in their state and the consequences of that decision.

People who choose the strongly advocated government plan of administration will ultimately become "magnets for low income people," because they will migrate to the states with the most free-bees.

Doctors will also relocate out of those government driven states to those that choose a "free market" course.

The best doctors and health care providers will relocate to those states that do not buy in on the Obamacare state program, resulting in economic advancement and an increased quality of life for those who live in the state.

Governors met last week to begin discussions regarding this matter. It is important that we are and remain informed on the matter because it sets a course for each state that has real consequences.

And before we think, "Oh no, we should have elected Rob McKenna," not to worry. Although he had initially joined a group of AGs that filed a suit against Obamacare, he made it very clear during the campaign that he did not support overturning Obamacare and actually believed there were a number of good aspects to it.

McKenna would have been no more inclined to make the "free market" choice than Inslee will be.

Please take a moment and read the linked article, then follow the process in the coming months as an informed citizen.

Be Vigilant. Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful. Be Active. Be Blessed.


  1. A new Kaiser Health Tracking poll conducted just after the election showed that 49 percent wanted to either expand the Affordable Care Act (27 percent) or keep it as is (22 percent).

    Only 33 percent wanted to either repeal it and replace with a Republican alternative (14 percent) or repeal it without a replacement (19 percent).

    Boehner was right, it's the law of the land. When the states refuse to do the health exchanges, the feds will do it for them with a uniform program that will just make it easier to get a national public option down the road.

    Keep handing these republican governors rope, they seem know what to do with it.

    1. I tend to agreer with you , not neccessarily your polling data . Fore many Americans still do not know the consequences of Obama care , one thing is for sure the President will not have to answer for the failure, democrats in 2016 will have much to answer for . As will those supporting present policies when our credit rating goes further south . Inflation under a staggant economy tends to hurt the poor the most .

      If this election taught the conservatives it should be how to package the message . Pro Life demonstrations should turn into pro life marathons where money is given to support pro life issues , such as feeding the poor, helping the elderly , housing the homeless, reaching out to the orphans , helping those getting out of prisons .

      Think Conservatves , keep the principle , keep the message , but change the deliverly to a changing world that still needs Savior .

    2. Actually, no, the party in power during an economic recovery generally stays in power for a couple election cycles. Don't know what consequences of Obama you're talking about. None of your sides dire predictions have come thru in years. Once, it's fully implemented, popularity will continue to rise. Plus, the republicans do not appear to have learned anything. Even Gary is saying that democrats just want free stuff and is continuing the anti-gay rhetoric right on this page. The next four years are going to be very fun for the democrats.

    3. Oh, and the credit rating only went south because the republicans threatened to default on our payments - read the statement from the reporting company. If they do it again, they are guaranteeing a democratic house in 2014. Obama will play it much tougher this time and really call 'em out on their stunts.

  2. Just saw a great quote, not sure of the source,

    "We are the only first world country where working people are afraid of their medical bills"

    And our coverage is only 37th in the world. Time for a change and Obama care is a good first step.
