"Daniels argues the new laws place undue burden on state governments. He specifically criticizes the state-based exchange system expected to be implemented in 2014 under the new laws, and he lays out reforms to the system that he and 20 other governors have endorsed in a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.
Some governors do and some governors bitch.
Vermont's Governor lays out details of health care plan:
"The plan would move the state through three stages in four years to reach the target of a single-payer system.
The Shumlin administration proposes the state take two steps effective July 1: Create a health benefit exchange or marketplace called for under the federal health care law and set up a Vemront Health Reform Board to “develop payment reform and cost containment methodologies that will result in sustainable rates of growth in health care spending,” Wallack.
The next phase would begin in 2014 when the health benefit exchange begins operating.“We propose that we include in the exchange, at that time, employer groups with fewer than 100 employees,” Wallack said.“We also propose that state and municipal employees become part of the exchange, and that we integrate Medicaid, Medicare and workers’ compensation with exchange policy.”
The state would move to the final stage if and when the federal government granted Vermont waivers to establish a single, publicly financed exchange."
