Johanns is critical of the Opt Out

Senator Mike Johanns is critical of proposals offering states the ability to opt out of a public option in health care reform. Johanns tells us that it depends on the proposal.
“The down side of that, and I think that’s what you’re going to see with this opt out is we will not be able to opt out of the cuts to Medicare, we will not be able to opt out of the increased taxes and fees that will be assessed.”
Senator Johanns calls the state opt out provision an illusion.
