Woops. I guess them small government conservatives aren't so small government when in comes to their home states. I suppose they want a socialist state in the US. HAHA. Hilarious.
13 Republicans Voted To Allow Single-Payer Systems In States
I think it's the latter.The amendment to the committee's health care bill allows states to essentially opt out of a national public health insurance option if they set up a single-payer alternative that meets similar standards for coverage. Offered by one of Congress's foremost liberals, Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio), the legislation enables a system progressives have long desired.
So why would 13 House Republicans, after bemoaning Democratic plans for public health care for months, attach their names to the provision? Depending on who you ask, it's either a philosophical belief in states' rights or childish political shenanigans.
