GOP governors vow to ignore Obamacare

Posted by on Jun 28, 2012 at 1:53 pm

Republican governors are planning to ignore the Supreme Court’s decision Thursday to uphold Obamacare hoping that the issue will drive voters to dump President Obama in favor of Mitt Romney who has vowed to kill the Affordable Care Act.

After the decision, the Republican Governors Association said that nothing should be done by the states until after the election, a clear signal that they believe a GOP president, House and Senate will kill the health care reform pushed through by Democrats and opposed by Republicans.

RGA Chairman Bob McDonnell said, “Today’s ruling crystallizes all that’s at stake in November’s election. The only way to stop Barack Obama’s budget-busting health care takeover is by electing a new president. Barack Obama’s health care takeover encapsulates his presidency: Obamacare increases taxes, grows the size of government and puts bureaucrats over patients while doing nothing to improve the economy.”

    The one bit of good news is that the blackmail capability of the federal government was curtailed (they can only hold back additional funding, not all funding).

    What’s to stop Congress from slapping a penalty — oops, a tax — on their subjects who live in a State that refuses to jump when they say frog? Eventually the residents would be forced to demand that their State buckle under, and that would be that.
