    Govenor, I thought you said that the President and Washington never cooperate with you? Perhaps your partisan criticisms were premature? Please try to be part of the soluton and not part of the problem we already have with our politicians in Washinton (including our Utah representatives). At least Senator Hatch has the wisdom to vote in favor of the fiscal cliff agreement.

    Governor Herbert shold be applauded for trying to set up a better program for Utah.

    However, it is doomed to failure, as the Obama administration will not approve any good features that deviate from their goal of a socialist takeover of all healthcare. And, even if any good differences do slip through, we can be sure that Washington will do their best to make sure we "pay our fair share" to cover the wasteful excesses of the federal program anyway.

    Obamacare never should have been passed; should have been declared unconstitutional, should be repealed, and should not be funded. But, it will remain the law of the land and spearhead our decline into socialism.

    There will be fewer doctors, less care, more bureaucrats, more lawsuits, and and higher prices under Obamacare. I doubt if Utah can avoid any of those negative features., despite Gov. Herbert's good efforts.

    The states are nearly always able to do a better job at getting things done than the feds.
    More power to Governor Herbert in taking on the responsibilities of governing. Keeep the feds at bay. they have way overstepped their bounds and constitutional authority. Name one federal program that is successful in doing things over the long term successfully. Our country is in a mess. We live in a state of decay. Our monetary system is becomming worthless. There is a muddy road ahead.

    Why should the feds allow Utah to do it's own thing? PEOPLE, ONE IN FIVE OF YOU HAVE NO COVERAGE. Furthermore, those of us who do have coverage are seeing cuts and losses of benefits to the point that it doesn't help. Utah clearly doesn't know how to do this. Utah keeps talking up the great way we do things but we actually aren't that good at it.

    All these insurance "exchange" programs, state and federal is predatory socialism operating billion dollar scams that our mobster governor is operating.

    It took a devious mind like Romney financial guru and thief to create this complex plan of deception. Let people withdraw money from savings accounts of SSA, medicare, medicaid, then steal it back from them as a law suit from the state tax commissions recovery department as unpaid undisclosed secret loans from the insurance exchange.

    Romney has trained the Utah governors, Mass government, and the Obama government in the devious plan that is criminal and unconscionable in its very core of how to lend us our money and recover it with interest by taking it to court as a tax debt to the government.

    The good governor Sheriff of Nottingham is robbing from the poor to fill his pockets with ever schilling he can steal from those who have trust savings accounts with the SSA for their retirement years.

    The good sheriff Governor Herbert is a thief preying on our rights and property of the poorest and least able to fight off this unconstitutional governemnt theft.

    I give praise to our governor for standing up and fighting for preservation of state rights. We've become too federally oppressed and this is refreshing! :)
