Governor Herbert on State Powers and Healthcare

The Honorable Gary Herbert of Utah spoke at the Heritage Foundation this afternoon on healthcare, entitlement reform (including the issue with Medicaid I mention in my previous post), and the fight of the states against the growing powers, mandates, and intrusions of the federal government. Here is the video, just under an hour long. He's very thoughtful of federalism in his approach to governing and addressing the nation's problems; from his State of the State address-- "If we as a state fail to vigorously fight to protect and defend our rights under the Constitution, those rights will invariably be seized and usurped by the federal government. I remind Washington, we are a state, not a colony."
