If I were president, on Day One I would issue an executive order paving the way for Obamacare waivers to all 50 states. The executive order would direct the Secretary of Health and Human Services and all relevant federal officials to return the maximum possible authority to the states to innovate and design health-care solutions that work best for them.
As I have stated time and again, a one-size-fits-all national plan that raises taxes is simply not the answer. Under our federalist system, the states are “laboratories of democracy.” They should be free to experiment. By the way, what works in one state may not be the answer for another. Of course, the ultimate goal is to repeal Obamacare and replace it with free-market reforms that promote competition and lower health-care costs. But since an outright repeal would take time, an executive order is the first step in returning power to the states.
I only have one thing to say about Mitt Romney’s attempt to position himself for a presidential nomination…
P.A.T.H.E.T.I.C. (on, oh, so many levels).
If this is what Romney thinks will swing support his way, he is so far behind the current patriotic ideological trend that he isn’t even in the same hemisphere with the rest of us, (not that he ever was; being another progressive plant for the globalists).
