Dec. 17, 2012, Fairfax, VA-Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today thanked 32 states for not implementing a state-run health insurance exchange under Obamacare:
"32 states representing 63 percent of the population, a clear majority Americans, are to be praised for rejecting state exchanges under Obamacare. Because federal exchanges lack statutory authority to issue insurance subsidies and enforce the employer mandate, businesses in these states now will have the chance to challenge these regulations in court.
"This will help protect job creators from penalties and other costs under the law's employer mandate, affording them a competitive advantage over those which have state exchanges. This is a wholesale rejection of Obamacare at the state level."
