Breaking: HHS Will Let States Determine Health Care Particulars

What counts as “essential health care” that ObamaCare promised all Americans would have access to? The administration has decided to punt and leave the decision up to the states. That will mean that people in different states will have different benefit packages. The left is furious.

    I’ll bet the left is furious. No wonder the annoucement came on Friday.

  3. Jeff says:

    The result was bad for the left, but good for the country.

  4. John Goodman says:

    Why does the administration wait until Friday to release news it doesn’t want anyone to notice or ask questions about? Because Friday is “Take out the trash day.” See the vdeo here:

    Uncharacteristic of the Obama folks — giving up power.

    What is there to be furious about. States are not allowed to cut the aggregate value of benefits offered, they must still make the plans equally generous. They can only tinker with the configuration to reach that value. Of course allowing them change values and costs would be beneficial too, but I guess that is a bridge too far.

    So the left is furious because our federal government will have less power? Are admitting they’re communists now that demand the strongest possible federal government? What a warped world view that they can’t see interstate competition and experimentation being a good thing.
