Thank you for posting this petition, Nicholas.

This is underway to Stop Obamacare via the State Governors. Click on link to access/submit your state's petition! Act immediately! There is a December 14th decision deadline! www.freedomworks.org

Since the election, now fully two weeks ago, health policy experts such as our own Dean Clancy have been eagerly pointing out that those of us who believe in limited government still have a very real opportunity to halt one of the largest government intrusions of the past century - ObamaCare.

Blogger Rusty Weiss has presented a good, concise summary of how a number of states refusing to set up ObamaCare's health care exchanges could throw a wrench in the implementation of the law.

As several governors have noted, these exchanges will be largely federally controlled anyways, so why should states waste their time and resources setting them up, when refusing to do so could prevent the government from invading their state's health care system at all? The deadline to set up a state-run exchange was November 16th.

Happily, twenty states have stated their intentions not to set up a state exchange:

Alabama, Alaska, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Virginia, Wyoming, Wisconsin

Having forty percent of the states resist the ObamaCare exchanges is a major problem for the administration. Some folks in the media, of course, have criticized these states for refusing to "get with the program". Our Vice President of Health Care Policy, Dean Clancy, has this to say in reply...

But for residents of these states, it is important that you remain vigilant and encourage your governors to hold the line, because they now have another month during which they could be pressured to change their minds. The Department of Health and Human Services has pushed the deadline for planning to set up an exchange to December 14th of this year.

Six states are taking full advantage of the extended deadline, and are waiting to announce whether they will implement an exchange. It is especially crucial that residents of these states put pressure on their governors to avoid setting up an exchange (click on a state to Take Action and send a message to your governor): www.freedomworks.org

Arizona, Idaho, New Jersey, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Tennessee.

All six of these governors are Republicans who have stated their opposition to ObamaCare in the past. There is no excuse for them to cave now and force their states to pay for ObamaCares crucial infrastructure.

The remainder of the states (AR, CA, CO, CT, DE, HI, IA, IL, KY, MA, MD, MI, MN, MS, NC, NM, NV, NY, OR, RI, UT, VT, WA, WV) have declared their intention to implement either a partially or fully state-run exchange. This does not mean, however, that residents in those states should give up hope. Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, and New Mexico are four states where a determined grassroots outcry could cause their governors to perhaps think twice about their decision, and in all of these states it would be constructive to contact your state governments to let them know your thoughts on their decisions.

As a last note, it is worth pointing out the case of Utah, where the situation is decidedly different from most other states. Utah had already established a state health care exchange before ObamaCare was even passed. However, this exchange was extremely tailored to the states needs and is in many ways incompatible with the health care laws requirements of state exchanges. It remains to be seen whether the federal government will attempt to force Utah to bring its exchange into compliance with federal law, and that fight will bring up fundamental questions of federalism a states ability to chart its own course within an increasingly monolithic federal government.

"The rights of Americans with disabilities are well protected under existing law and are enforced by a wide range of state and federal agencies. Joining CRPD merely opens the door for foreign experts to interfere in U.S. policymaking in violation of the principles of American sovereignty."

The ominous UN Treaty was defeated today. clap

"Rick Santorum, the former pres. candidate who led much of the fight against the treaty, also praised the vote that defeated it. 'If it weren't for you, the U.S. Senate wouldn't have defeated the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities,' he told his supporters by email. 'Your petition signatures (over 20,000!), phone calls, emails and tweets about CRPDs flaws made the difference." www.lifenews.com
