USA Today | Rick Perry: ‘Another federal power grab’

It’s really far past time for us to call ObamaCare what it truly is: an unprecedented government overreach into every American’s life, forcing higher costs on individuals, practitioners, employers and state governments in lieu of actually fixing our health care system.

The core elements of this plan revolve around forcing individuals to buy health insurance and expecting states to add millions more people to their already-strained Medicaid systems.

Another part of the plan is equally duplicitous: the so-called state insurance exchanges.

Setting aside the obvious fact that health insurance is readily available under current conditions — the problem has been price, not availability — these exchanges represent nothing more than another federal power grab in the guise of a supposedly free market.
