Mike Pence absolutely gets it right. As reported in The Hill in August, Gov. Mike Pence (R-Ind.) used a weekly Republican address to tout Indiana's state healthcare program as a conservative alternative to President Obama's signature healthcare law.
"The Obama administration is creating confusion in the marketplace," Pence said. "It’s costing jobs, discouraging investment and making the future bleak for too many families.
“But there is an alternative to waiting on Washington, D.C., to come to its senses, and more Americans are realizing every day that the cure for what ails this country is starting to emerge ... not in our nation’s capital but in our nation’s state capitals.”
President Reagan reminded us that the states created the federal government, the federal government did not create the states, he said, and “All across this country 30 Republican governors are working hard to push back and preserve freedom.”
