    Can we just opt out of the federal govt. completely? People say it is about time.

    Obama care leaves a lot to be desired. If the state of Utah runs health care will they do a better job than how they run the DABC? I hope we are not dead last in spending like Education.

    In many ways, I completely agree with the concept. The decision to spend and responsibility for that decision should be as local as is possible. And yet Health Insurance is something that is hugely dependent on the size of the pool of people covered to keep cost low. The smaller the insurance pool, the higher the rates because the risk per person covered increases.

    This is one of those case where the intent is solid, but the rule of unintended consequences may have a striking impact on the back side of this. Increasing the risk for the insurer will result in higher cost... it is just that simple.
