According to Americans For Prosperity, it looks like the uber-Conservative state of Arizona is gearing up to impose a Health Exchange. AFP is holding a debate on the exchanges Sept 5, 2012 at the Goldwater Institute.
I really wish I could attend. This is the first public meeting that I've come across that questions the Health Exchanges.
PPACA (ObamaCare) is a network of health exchanges regulated at the Federal Level and implemented at the state level. Romney's promise to repeal ObamaCare will simply remove the Federal regulation, but will leave all the state run exchanges in place.
Romney will repeal the bill the created the exchanges, but leave the exchanges in place.
The end result of this political move is to capture the exchanges.
The Romney/Ryan administration will then seek to relabel the exchanges as the free market alternative to Obama's socialism.
The problem is that the Health Exchanges are not free market. The Health Exchanges in RomneyCare and ObamaCare create a captured market that centralizes health care and allows the ruling elite to skim billions off the system.
Wake up America. The fact that the uber-Conservative state of Arizona is following the path of RomneyCare should tell us that our nation is still headed in the wrong direction.
Both RomneyCare and ObamaCare are founded on the false assumption that insurance is the only possible way to fund health care. The goal of the Health Exchanges is to force everyone into highly centralized network of insurance options.
The best way to defeat this beast is to debate alternatives to insurance. I am still at the ready if there is any group brave enough to stand against the Democratic and Republican beast that has taken over our nation.
