Governors taking a stand re: ObamaCare

A physician is praising governors across the nation for choosing to opt out of "tyrannical" government-run health exchanges.

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) applauds Ohio Governor John Kasich for refusing to implement a health exchange in his state. Boehner believes Gov. Kasich is protecting Ohio families and small businesses from "steep costs and red tape" created by ObamaCare, as he notes that the government-run exchanges under the new healthcare law will drive up costs and thwart states' ability to regulate health insurance.

Smith, Dr. Keith (Oklahoma)Dr. Keith Smith, an Oklahoma-based board-certified anesthesiologist, finds Kasich's decision comparable to another trend.

"It's very similar, I think, to what's going on in Colorado and Washington state, where they're saying in regards to marijuana laws they don't really care with what the federal law is; they're just not going to comply with it," Smith offers.

"And I see this as a positive step in that right direction, where people are identifying the extent to which the federal government's become tyrannical, and they're just saying no."

Boehner has said that since Democrats remain in control of Washington, it is up to the governors and the Republican-led House to take bold steps against ObamaCare.
