Oklahoma Legislators Gambling On Health Care Decision
06/28/2012

State officials in Oklahoma have done
little to comply with the new federal health care law. Instead
they're gambling that a key provision will be struck down Thursday
by the U.S. Supreme Court.
     The move is calculated - albeit risky - for Oklahoma's GOP
leaders. They cited fears of a federal takeover of health care in
declining to set up a state-run health insurance exchange. Should
the law be upheld and the state doesn't create its own exchange by
November, the state would automatically be absorbed into the
federal system. That's the very thing they're fiercely trying to
avoid. However many GOP lawmakers believe the election of Mitt
Romney as President this November could also lead to the law being
reversed in 2013.
     When lawmakers decided to study how the state could set up its
own exchange, conservative activists were so relentless in their
opposition that the Legislature ultimately decided to do nothing.
