October Roundtable: Obamacare: To Delay, Defund, or Defy?
Date(s) - 10/17/2013
While the center right has been generally aligned on a goal of mitigating what they see as harmful impacts of increased federal involvement in health care, there has been less agreement on the best strategy to achieve this.
Some members of Congress support defunding certain programs as a means of hobbling implementation, while others see delay provisions as a better strategy. Meanwhile, in the states, think tanks and legislators are taking matters into their own hands and considering different policy approaches altogether, many with an eye towards limiting the role of the federal government.
What are the pros and cons of each of these strategies? Is this better resolved at the state or national level?
