  •  Yeah, but it's the state right to do nothing (0+ / 0-)

    This move will politically box them in, but it is their state right to do absolutely nothing about healthcare that they want to preserve.

    •  Actually, I have become more and more (5+ / 0-)

      convinced that there are areas of the country that are determined to stay ignorant and backwards and that there is little that can be done about that, at least in the short term. This proposal gives more progressive states the go-ahead to really try some progressive solutions.

      If there is no accountability for those who authorized torture, we can no longer say that we are a nation of laws, not men.

    •  Repuglies in a bind! (0+ / 0-)

      This ultimately put the repuglies in a bind. As a group they opposed HCA without having to put up. Now that the President has put the ball in their court, they will have to explain to their voters why its ok for many in the state to have no healthcare.  This was a “national” issue far removed from the person. Move this to the states and it becomes another death nail for baggers as it hits home and real nearby. No longer “philosophy” talk.

      Try not to let your mind wander... It's too small and fragile to be out by itself.
