I have a serious question.

Suppose Obama does shove this through.

What can the states do about it?

I have a serious question.

Suppose Obama does shove this through.

What can the states do about it?Specifically, that will depend largely upon the actual text of the legislation. States retain some autonomy in how they administer Medicaid, for example. The federal law sets a generalized set of guidelines, and the states are told, basically, to figure it out and make it work. Since we've got a severe case of nobody knows WTF this thing says, that's pretty hard to answer right now.

Speaking more generally, the answer is "probably nothing." The Supremacy Clause is weilded like Thor's hammer these days, and few judges on the federal level pay any heed to the Tenth Amendment, while Congress pretends that it isn't even there.
