Walker dismantles years of health care coverage for Wisconsinites, while Maryland will implement Obamacare and save the state $850 million. Are we smart or what?

Gov. Scott Walker is apparently going to take his chances with a free market health care model, while other states not driven by a ridged Republican agenda, will save their citizens money. Hey, they get to do whatever they want, the voters said go for it.
Baynet: Maryland LT. GOVERNOR BROWN PRAISES MOVEMENT OF ADMINSTRATION’S HEALTH CARE REFORM PACKAGE BY GENERAL ASSEMBLY: “As we mark the one-year anniversary of the Affordable Care Act this week, it is exciting to see the General Assembly move forward on our health care reform package, which will help reduce costs, expand access, and improve the quality of care for all Marylanders.
Here’s the kicker, and something we won’t see happen in Wisconsin now:
According to research by the independent Hilltop Institute, implementing the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will save Maryland an estimated $850 million and cut the number of Marylanders living without health insurance in half by 2020.
Even more benefits lost for Wisconsinites:
The Health Care Reform Package, championed by Lt. Governor Brown, would establish a framework for Maryland’s health benefit exchange that will provide individuals and small businesses one-stop shopping for affordable insurance options; help an estimated 180,000 low-income Marylanders access federal subsidies for coverage; support small business access to affordable coverage; and allow private insurers to offer competitive plans in a fair and transparent marketplace where consumers will be able to compare rates, benefits, and quality to find plans that best suit their needs.
That's outrageous!! Looks like Marylanders are about to give up their freedoms and liberties saving health care money they can now pour back into the local economy. Socialist suckers.
