Modern American conservatism has basically redefined itself to make any mechanism to get universal coverage incompatible with conservative principles. This plan is a reminder that conservatives don’t think providing everyone with affordable health care is a goal worth pursuing. They basically see all the cures as worse than the disease.

The newly passed health care law is not popular, and Republicans are starting to line up behind a political strategy of calling for its repeal. While true repeal seems like a legislative impossibility, the political strategy might work. When forced to choose between the false duality of this new health care law or no law, a large portion of the American people line up behind repeal. The relatively good news for Democrats is that most Americans don’t like the bill, but would prefer to see it significantly changed instead of repealed. This creates the perfect political environment to push for a better and quicker optional state waiver.
