States Reject Wonderboy's Government Healthcare Insurance Pools

It's probably not the sort of news story you'll see on a major broadcast network like NBC or CBS. Or probably even the Communist News Network.

As of today, 18 states have rejected using the option of government insurance pools for health insurance, as outlined in the health care bill Wonderboy and his Congressional cronies rammed through in March.

I haven't heard which, if any, states have actually chosen to use the pools. But it's reasonable to expect that by summer, at least half of the 50 states will choose not to hitch their health care wagons to the rather unspecific, risky option of an open-ended federal government risk pool. Who knows how many states will ultimately reject this shadowy insurance option?

Quite the come-down for the Democrats, isn't it? So far, about 1/3 of the states have rejected the federal option. And we're only two months into the new era of new medicine, courtesy of Frisco Nan, Wonderboy & Co.
