Otter Rejects Allred Health Care Plan

“We can opt out as long as we’re as bad as or worse than what [Congress] presented,” Otter said Thursday during a campaign event in Boise.  Federal legislation that would allow states to opt out of new health care laws requires that states come up with a plan that is at least as comprehensive as the federal plan.  Otter said that a state version of changes to health insurance would be just as bad as the federal plan.  “It’s a bank buster.  We’re looking at a century of debt before we get out of it.”  The governor supports rejecting the new national plan by suing the federal government on constitutional grounds/Brad Iverson-Long, Idaho Reporter.
