With the Senate bill now up for discussion, one focus will be on how the public option is implemented. The Senate allows states to “opt-out.” Who’s the “state”?
Can a governor unilaterally opt-out? Must it be by a vote of the legislature? Is there a gubernatorial veto possibility? Must there be a referendum?
Maybe it’s in the 2,000+ page bill. But as I’m probably the only person on the planet who hasn’t read it in its entirety, I wonder if someone could please inform me, because they press sure hasn’t.
