  •  States can't opt out of Obamacare (5+ / 0-)

    They can opt out of the Medicaid expansion. Otherwise, if they refuse to set up exchanges, the hated evil Feds will step in and do it for them, so their residents will still get the expanded coverage.

    And my guess is that if the expanded coverage looks like a good thing, the Republican politicians who opposed and blocked it will be happy to muddy the issue by grandstanding and claiming credit for this wonderful new thing. That's what they do with earmarks and just about everything else.

    •  So take credit first. Now! (0+ / 0-)

      They can't muddy the issue if we get there first.

      I'm asking you to believe. Not in my ability to bring about real change in Washington ... *I'm asking you to believe in yours.* Barack Obama
