Wicked Commentary

Some of these GOP governors including Gov. John Kasich of Ohio, Gov. Robert Bentley of Alabama, Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, Gov. Rick Scott of Florida, Gov. Rick Perry of Texas, Gov. Mary Fallin of Oklahoma, Gov. Sam Brownback of Kansas, Gov. Nikki Haley of South Carolina, Gov. Robert McDonnell of Virginia, and Governor Nathan Deal of Georgia, have announced they will refuse to implement the Obamacare exchanges because they are too costly and they don’t have the necessary information they need to, to know what it’s going to fully cost.

 

 

A number of other GOP governors are still weighing the issues of whether or not to make the same decision.

 

Virginia Gov. Robert McDonnell commented on the situation saying:

 

“Republican governors would rather do things at the state level, rather than have the federal government do it, but the problem is we’ve been asking for months in writing for information and the rule-making to give us the information about how the state and federal exchanges are going to be set up. And we still have a great absence of information.”

“If they’re not going to provide the information . . . the only thing to do is to default and let the federal government set it up.  Either way, you comply with the law.”

“It’s a great concern with already an over-burdensome Medicaid program that is killing most governors’ budgets around the country, so we want to know what we’re getting into. If there’s no answers, we’re going to have a federal exchange. I can’t recommend that we set [a state exchange] up in Virginia.”

Governors across the nation have until December 14 to make their decision on whether or not they will implement the Obamacare exchanges.

  1. Good post. That makes a lot of sense, to protest implimenting something if you don’t know – can’t know – what it will cost. (or what all is in it) Well, this on top of Obama’s declared War on States makes it even harder to accept. And all this is OBAMA’s fault, no one else’s.

      Yes, it makes good sense not to implement the damn Obamacide. Remember Pelosi telling us they have to pass the bill before we can know what’s in it. I’ve never in my life heard such horse manure as that woman spews.

      It is the Evil Doer’s fault, not doubt of it. This one he cannot blame on Bush.

    I’m hoping the fiscal cliff will capture enough momentum to shut things down, that this will get placed on hold….for about 75 or 80 years.

    • Gar,

      That’s a very real possibility and that may be why the FEMA camps are ready to throw the anarchists into it when all of their goodies run out of money.

  3. Good post Pepp! I’m so glad some governors are standing against Obamacide. To me it’s a no-brainer and it’s a shame this unconstitutional issue that NO ONE knows how much is really going to cost is a party line issue. Just goes to show the great number of politicians that don’t give a rat’s ass about us or our already bankrupt country. They’ll take us all down with the flushing toilet yelling, “Hile Obama!”… dumb asses…

    Oh; I ran a company for over 20 years and I can’t recall a single time I ever implemented anything without knowing the real cost. And keep in mind I’m no genius…

      It is disappointing that we have a dem governor. It’s kind of odd too since we have so many Repub reps and Senators. Beshear will fall over backwards for the Rat. But, remember we got rid of Chandler for you. LOL!! So you now have a repuke rep you can write to once he’s installed. Also one can write to Thomas Massie who took the 4th district. We should do a campaign like thing to get Beshear to back off the Obamacide.

      Our family doctor told Ron this week during an app’t he’s not bothering with Obamacide. He said he’s ignoring it. How about those guts?

        I never thought Chandler would be out of my hair, so thanks to all you redistricted conservatives that help get rid of this hemorrhoid on my ass! I should have bought stock in the makers of Prep-H years ago due to Chandler and I would have quadrupled my investment!!!

        About the only thing Beshear is afraid to go along with is taking away our guns. Besides that; if the Traitor farts Beshear burps!

        • Dave,

          I had the feeling in my gut that Chandler would get ousted. Up here in the NE, we are a dfferent breed and we don’t cotton to Alinsky party reps. So you owe me. 😉

          If you recall back a few years ago, Governor Beshear had ordered a Nativity scene be taken down somewhere. I can’t recall where. Anyway, the people got so angry, that Beshear ordered the Nativity scene to be put back up.

          That is the power of the We, the People working. I think if enough of us here in ole KY decided to get angry at him for other things he might cave. Ya never know.

            I totally agree with your premise, but my issue is way too many people DON’T do shit or get angry over the radicals taking over our country. I feel like I’m reliving the fall of the Roman Empire. They got to where they cared more about security and comfort than rights and freedoms and they went belly up. WE have always had the power and still do, but the Alinskites have been brainwashing for years through education and media and now it seems there are few of us left. All we can do for the sake of our nation and future generations is take on the piss ant’s no matter how great their numbers may be.

            As I always use to say before a fight, “We are the shit are you all are the nitwits!”

          • Dave, I know what you mean. There are not enough people in this country who give a rat’s behind. And that is the very, deep problem we have in trying to oust these radicals. I see nothing but doom for this country.

  4. Our gov. hasn’t the stones to opt out. I’m sure he is going to go along to get along.
