State Insurance Exchanges Will Not Avoid Federal Controls

December 6, 2012

Governor Brewer recently decided not to set up a state insurance exchange for Arizona. She should be complimented for this decision. Approximately 17 states so far have decided to set up these state exchanges. Their governors have stated that the main reason for doing so is to maintain state independence and avoid federal controls.

This level of ignorance about how the federal government operates is breath taking. There are already controls in the Obama care law itself that the states will have to follow and, when the regulations are written implementing the Obama care law, these 17 states will find that they are, once again, captive robots of the federal government. There will be numerous “incentives” and penalties to insure “compliance.”

We should thank Governor Brewer for not being fooled by promises of independence.
