Obamacare Continued

The Obamacare saga continues, with The New York Times reporting that many states lack the authority to enforce key provisions of the Health Care Reform Law. Michigan is one of those states.
When it comes to enforcing the new standards the States are expected to play the primary role – if they don’t the federal government will step in. What can states do if they do not currently have the power to enforce the health care law’s provisions? They could count on the goodwill of the insurance companies, rely on “persuasion” or general laws currently in place banning unfair practices. The other option? Make some more laws! Another increase in government power – exactly what we need.
