The obamacare bill has in it one part in it that looks to make it easy to get out of. Sec 1555
16 SEC. 1555. FREEDOM NOT TO PARTICIPATE IN FEDERAL17 HEALTH INSURANCE PROGRAMS.18 No individual, company, business, nonprofit entity, or19 health insurance issuer offering group or individual health20 insurance coverage shall be required to participate in any21 Federal health insurance program created under this Act22 (or any amendments made by this Act), or in any Federal23 health insurance program expanded by this Act (or any24 such amendments), and there shall be no penalty or fine
Even if the state did not offer insurance to anyone it would be easy to create a policy for one person, say the governor, and call it a day. Saying we have to pick between a state or federally run program are not our only options.
