A Bit of Federalism in ObamaCare

Senator Ron Wyden has written to government officials of Oregon to encourage them to “come up with innovative solutions that the Federal government has never had the flexibility or will to implement.” This is significant because he is a democrat. As long as a state covers the same number of uninsured and keeps coverage as comprehensive, the following can be waived:

1. the individual mandate to purchase insurance (i.e., what Virginia and Florida are suing over)
2. regulations about business taxes
3. federal standards for minimum benefits
4. allocation of subsidies in the insurance “exchanges.”

The full essay is at "Federalism in Obamacare."
