    If a state says that, sure, our private health insurance market will cover everyone just fine, I'd like to know how much of a burden of proof is required.

    I hadn't anticipated that states like Vermont might try to do better, by going single-payer.  That would be great, if it happens.  My worry when I first heard about this was that red states would try to get off doing as little as they possibly could, demanding a waiver and claiming as big a theoretical result as possible for their minimal systems, then just letting the ACA's guarantees collapse in their states.
