21 Progress Establishing Exchanges We have heard today that the reason for state inactivity is lack of guidance from HHS. But [then]one would expect the leading states to be confronting the most barriers and complaining the most loudly... In reality, the opposite is true. Those states are seizing the flexibility afforded them to pursue innovative approaches. Indeed, the primary factor contributing to this variation is the political climate in the states. Heather Howard Testimony, House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Health September 12, 2012

22 Scenarios Obama wins Romney wins Republican Senate Romney wins Democratic Senate  Law preserved  Law repealed  Law preserved

ACA repealed  Stick with coverage?  Explore what can be preserved, built on?  Address other coverage-related issues? E.g., specific populations?  Innovative insurance models?  Safety net?
