How to BLOCK OBAMACARE in Your State

Here in the darkest days -so far- of the nightmarish Obama era, it seems the monstrous statist power-and-tax-grab known as 'Obamacare' is here to stay... or is it?

Judge Roberts might have sold us down the river, but there's still plenty of fight left in conservatives. And it's not just us right-wingers-clingers either: fact is, Dear Leader's unwanted and unloved quasi-nationalization of the US healthcare industry has never enjoyed majority public support in this country- same as the day they rammed it through. At least half the electorate still wants it repealed.

We all know we're being screwed here, yet Americans aren't the type to lay back and learn to enjoy it: with states' rights as a last line-of-defense remaining in the Obamacare battle, the healthcare scheme needs the (voluntary) establishment of state-operated insurance exchanges to work. Alas, only 15 states have said they're willing to do so, and without them, this dog won't hunt. 

The widespread state-level resistance seems have caught the White House by surprise, so why not twist the knife in your own state- and help finish off this big, dumb Frankenstein?

A new site -BlockExchanges.com- aims to consolidate efforts to keep Obamacare exchanges from being established in each of our states, which in turn would force Congress to either re-write or repeal the entire law...

So, what are health care exchanges, and why are we so concerned about stopping them? 

Exchanges are the bureaucratic mechanism for enacting ObamaCare in the states, an online marketplace where individuals must shop for their government-approved insurance plan. They are also the clearinghouse through which the government will distribute the premium subsidies to help people purchase their regulated insurance. The exchanges are also required to collect the data that allows the government to enforce the “employer mandate”, the penalty employers must pay if they do not insure their employees. 

But most importantly, the health care exchanges are voluntary to the states, and without them ObamaCare cannot function

This is because of a flaw in the bill itself, the “Affordable Care Act”, which only authorizes a state-created exchange to distribute the subsidies. Without the subsidies, there is no incentive to participate in ObamaCare at all. 

This leaves states with the critical option – do they participate in ObamaCare and subject their residents to the massive cost increases and government control of their health care, or do they opt out and force the government to reopen the health care law? 

The answer should be clear – if enough states opt out of the exchanges, we still have the chance to dismantle ObamaCare. The states should stand their ground, and for the federal government to deal with the mess they have created...
