Most politicians, and consequently many voters who bet all their chips on the federal government’s actions, think of Congress and the President and maybe the Supreme Court when it comes to health care issues.
It matters little to none whether the politician is a Democrat pushing for that next step toward a public option or even single payer system, or a Republican mistakenly pushing tort reform from DC while preaching the merits of limited government. It was not until ObamaCare that Governors (including one Democrat) and legislators across these 50 States mentioned not implementing the federally mandated health insurance exchanges.
Although we as a state have a long way to go toward beginning to act like a state again, there are small sparks of hope that need some fuel poured on them. Governor Christie vetoed the bill that would have implemented the health insurance exchanges, and we are hoping he will do so again.Details
