I was reading over Romney's overall plan, and I realize how sensible he is. One thing that caught my eye was
"Directs the Secretary of Health and Human Services and all relevant federal officials to return the maximum possible authority to the states to innovate and design health care solutions that work best for them"
This is how America is supposed to work, with power in the States. One great advantage of this is that different states with different plans can be compared. Results from different approaches can be observed and learned from. In a way, you can think of it as 50 tests to find the best way, rather than the whole nation throwing its hat into the ring together.
It also fosters competition. States compete against each other for residents and businesses. Competition leads to innovation and efficiency, two things our federal government lacks in droves.
I want to see the power back in the hands of the states. If I look across the state border and see greener pastures, I have the liberty to move. It's part of America and we need to stop federalizing everything.
If you want state's rights, then you'd better start talking about Ron Paul.
Without his name, your words ring hollow.
Ron Paul's not going to get elected no matter what I do.
At least Romney wants to give States rights over insurance.

There is a provision in the Health Care Reform Law that clearly and explicitly allows states to opt-out of the Federal Health Care System, and they can cancel the individual mandate if it suits them to do so. There is a catch. They have to set up a health care system that meets the standards and...
