David Ripley: Pennsylvania Says NO

December 13th, 2012 by Halli

Idaho Chooses Life

A day after Governor Otter announced his decision to voluntarily implement ObamaCare, the governor of Pennsylvania declared that he would not.
Gov. Tom Corbett declared that it would be “irresponsible” to establish a state insurance exchange.

“Health care reform is too important to be achieved through haphazard planning,” Corbett is quoted as saying. “Pennsylvania taxpayers and businesses deserve more.”

Seeing a Democrat state reject ObamaCare makes Otter’s decision all the more difficult to accept.

And Corbett’s comments raise a profound problem with Otter’s decision: By agreeing to chase the federal government around the table – awaiting word on its ever-changing decrees – Otter has assumed responsibility for making ObamaCare work. That would be difficult under the best of circumstances. But the ideological numbskulls running Washington make “success” impossible to imagine.

Even more disturbing is the simple fact that Idaho can no longer pursue meaningful and effective reforms of the health care system, especially market-based reforms which might produce economies and increased individual power. Otter’s regrettable decision to implement ObamaCare means a huge loss of opportunity for Idaho to lead the nation in a completely different direction.

Perhaps the Legislature can persuade Governor Otter to reconsider.
