Question by Les S: Why do Republicans oppose state regulated private insurance exchanges?
The Obama administration on Monday released broad new operating rules for state-run health insurance exchanges, which form a key part of the 2010 federal healthcare reform law that will face landmark Supreme Court hearings in just two weeks.

Industry and consumer groups welcomed the regulations, saying they provided states with the flexibility necessary to meet consumer needs for choice and quality protections. They also said the regulations shift policy focus to the state level, where the new rules must be implemented.

Both the insurance industry and consumer watchdog groups approve of the state run exchanges, which will help reduce costs and provide insurance to millions.

Why do Republicans oppose this?
– The federal government plays a negligible role
– private insurance companies still provide the insurance
– the states have control over the exchanges
– The exchanges open markets for private companies to provide insurance across state lines
– and costs are being reduced.

All of these things republicans supported in the past. Why do they oppose it now?

i am for both pros and cons. But I do support everyone getting affordable healthcare. My brother who is diabetic and 23 years old was denied healthcare by himself and even in a family plan. People dont care if they get healthcare or not because they don’t have preexisting conditions. The bill raised the age limit for family plan to 26 and allowed him to get healthcare. His medicine is not cheap and this healthcare might be able to help him…

what about you? what do u oppose?

They do care about Americans! When is the last time Republicans policed their own party! 100% support of Iraq War…….100% support of Patriot Act………and so on!

If the Democrats are so bad, then they would push this bill through just because they can. They have to be looking at more than just party lines!

This blew my mind. The fact that people are still opposed to this bill is a “surprise” according to this public health professor at Harvard….. Seriously??

Is this the kind of bullsh*t advice/analysis Obama has been receiving?? Are these people really this clueless??

“The surprise of this poll is that you would expect people to be more supportive of the bill now that it’s the law of the land — and that’s not the case,” said Robert Blendon, a Harvard public health professor who follows opinion trends on health care. “The election for the House is going to be competitive, and health care is clearly going to be an issue.”

The nearly $1 trillion, 10-year health care remake would provide coverage to nearly all Americans while also attempting to improve quality and slow the ruinous pace of rising medical costs.

Nonpartisan congressional budget analysts say the law is fully paid for. Its mix of Medicare cuts and tax increases, falling mainly on upper-income earners, would actually reduce the federal deficit. And people covered by large employers may even see a dip in their premiums.

The public doesn’t seem to be buying it.

Fifty-seven percent said they expect to pay more for their own health care, contrasted with 7 percent who expect to pay less. And 47 percent said they expect their own medical care to get worse, compared with 14 percent looking forward to an improvement.

“Based on the little information we know, somebody’s going to have to pay for it, so it makes sense that taxes would go up,” said Lang Fu, 48, an oil and gas engineer from Houston.
reality……….It’s amusing how Obama apologists constantly use that excuse YET they never explain the bill. I mean it’s not like Democrats had over 12 months and a bully pulpit to explain it…..lol
