Romney had states rights on his side. States can decide for themselves.
Obamacare is a federal penalty-oh wait, I’m sorry, a “tax”-that will incur massive federal debt (as if we don’t have enough) and cause small business to cut jobs. And big corporations, like McDonald’s, won’t be giving out healthcare because it’s cheaper to pay the fine than it is to pay for employee healthcare benefits. Which means those people still won’t have employee healthcare and will have to find another way to get it. As well as those who get laid off from small business jobs.
And then there is the religious matter. Which speaks for itself.
Just because it works in ONE out of 57 states, or is it 50 states, doesn’t mean it will work on a federal government level. States are better at controlling public plans than a federal government. Federal plans are just too large to work. State’s deal with their own residents which is a much smaller constituency than the federal level. Plus, it doesn’t impose on other states that don’t want that kind of plan.
Edit: Don’t forget that less people will aspire to become doctors, waiting rooms will fill up with humungous lines, appointments will take forever to get, as will surgery.
