Why should I care about federal vs state rights?

The premise behind most arguments about Obamacare, and other programs is that it's a "Federal" vs "State" rights issue.I come from a corporate business background, and it seems to me that if enough states support a certain policy, if that policy is adopted at the federal level, it becomes "an economy of scale", and therefore cost less.Most of the Republican proposals argue that government is too big, and in my line of thinking their argument reduces efficiency, and effectiveness. **Question**Regardless of the particular policy at hand (unless it can be abstracted into a manageable partitionable concept), why should I care about most arguments about policy residing at the State vs Federal level? I'm asking so I can make the most out of my time, listening to the arguments of both sides, and ignoring the theatrics that distract from policy
