ALG - Health care compact would restore control of health insurance, Medicare, and Medicaid to states 

6

Feb. 14, 2014, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement praising Rep. James Lankford for introducing H.J. Res. 110, legislation that would allow states to enter into an interstate compact to regulate health care on their own without federal interference:

"If New York or California like Obamacare, they can keep it. But if other states want out, there should be no reason they cannot administer federal funds the way they see fit. Americans for Limited Government urge every member of the House to cosponsor Lankford's bill to restore state control over health care.

"If states want to opt out of federal administration of health insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, and the insurance exchanges, they should be allowed to. That is what the health compact will accomplish. The compact will transfer federal control of health care to participating states that choose to adopt the compact. It is not mandatory."
