The states have had 200+ years to do so, and they have utterly failed.[/QUOTE]
Any why is that? Mitt Romney managed did he not? I'm sure that Massachusetts or one of the many states with huge democratic majorities could have come up with a far better system then this one, which is simply another tax from the poor to the rich.
That's just absurd. The ACA is very progressive; it provides Medicaid and/or subsidies to the poor and middle-class to enable them to buy insurance, and most of the taxes to pay for it come from the wealthy. You are just factually wrong; I suggest actually reading the provisions of the ACA and their impact on the economy before you make ridiculous claims like "it's a tax from the poor to the rich."which is simply another tax from the poor to the rich.
