Why Doing Nothing is the Right Thing... (*E-mails of GOP Legislators including House Speaker Jase Bolger and House Health Care Policy Gaines Haines and link to phone numbers and Faxes below)

The health care law is fatally flawed, both practically and legally, which means:  Congress should go back to the drawing board - ultimately they will be forced to do so...the actions of States will slow or speed this process The U.S. Supreme Court ruling didn't hold up the law in FULL and many matters have yet to be litigated - new rounds have already started 

The Supreme Court ruling prohibited the Federal government from forcing States to expand Medicaid. For the same reasons, the Exchanges have always been VOLUNTARY. By actively assisting the Federal government in setting up Exchanges and/or expanding Medicaid, States are: http://www.s http://www.scribd.com/d cribd.com/doc/114197309/S oc/114197309/Summary-Sectionummary-Section-1311-Exchan 1311-ExchangegeProvisions-of-PPACAProvisionsof-PPACA-and-Reconciliat and-Reconciliation-2010-Healt ion-2010-Health-Care-Law h-Care-Law     Agreeing to make decisions which are not all consistent with pro-life principles (See PPACA Section 1311, (e)(1)(B)(iii))   Being irresponsible: the Federal Department of Health and Human Services has repeatedly failed to provide detailed information and can later change many 

  Commits the State to permanent expenditures, whether money is available in the budget or not (See  (See http://grassrootsne.com/?p=19531  http://grassrootsne.com/?p=19531 and http://www.samhsa.gov/Financing/post/CBO-Cost-Estimate-of-the-Repeal-ofthe-Maintenance-of-Effort-Requirements.aspx))  the-Maintenance-of-Effort-Requirements.aspx   Abdicates State Sovereignty and essentially hands Michigan's budget over to the Secretary of DHHS   Exposes the State to liabilities that would only fall upon the Federal government if the State refuses complicity in implementing the law   Takes away the State's ability to mount additionally available legal challenges in future - once the State gives its consent to participating in Exchanges (or expands Medicaid), that's over

As chief Justice Robert's noted in his m majority ajority opinion ruling " And it seems seems to me that  they have compromis compromised ed their status as independent sovereigns because they are so dependent on what the Federal Government has done, they should not be surprised  that the Federal Government, having attached the — they tied the strings, they  shouldn’t be surprised surprised if the the Federal Governme Government nt isn’t goin going g to start pulling them.” 

If the State refuses to do anything with the Exchanges or to expand ex pand Medicaid, the Federal government likely has no choice but to go back to the drawing board AND States and others will likely have basis for additional legal challenges: challenges:

  There are no provisions for "State Partnership Exchanges" in the health care law - this entity is purely constructed by the Secretary of DHHS and therefore, likely unlawful   There are no appropriations in the law for "State Partnerships" or solely Federal exchanges - by law DHHS is required r equired to request appropriations from the House Representatives - which is Republican controlled   of No State Obamacare Exchange Still Best Choice http://www.michigancapitolconfiden ichigancapitolconfidential.com/17969 tial.com/17969,,    http://www.m



  There are no provisions for solely Federal exchanges to either provide subsidies



to individuals (a new entitlement) or to provide some logistical elements necessary to implement them   Feds Face Challenges in Launching Health Exchange http://www.nationaljournal.com/healthcare/feds-face-challenges-in-launchin http://www.nationaljournal.com /healthcare/feds-face-challenges-in-launchingghealth-exchange-20111219



  Exchanges and Medicaid expansions - both State-controlled programs - are THE two conduits through which coverage, subsidies, AND penalties are primarily delivered. Without State complicity, many individuals and   businesses can't have have the penalties iimposed mposed on them.

only 38 percent of the public supports it  Obamacare Is Still Vulnerable  Vulnerable  Now is not the time to go wobbly. http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/333040/obamacare-still-vulnerable-michael-fcannon
