Health care reform…the ups, the downs

Seems like a whole lot of Republican-led states have decided to let the federal government run the "health care exchanges" that are mandated by the Affordable Care Act. Only 18 states have set up their own exchanges, says The Washington Post, the other 32 just shoveled all or part of the job off to the feds.


Hard to understand the reasoning here….many of these Republican leaders blasted away in public against ACA, "government intrusion" in health care, etc., and now they're rather casually giving away control to Uncle Sam. Isn't that a little cockeyed? They're INVITING the federal government to take charge?..........

Oh, wait, somebody just whispered this is a continuation of the Republican blocking move, Republican governors don't want to take responsibility for any part of ACA…

In my mind, maybe it's just another example of politicians letting ideology get in the way of common sense and what's good for the people they represent.

I support the affordable Health Care Act, I'm happy to see the federal government in control in states where the Republican leadership has done everything to block ACA implementation...

Health care reform, coming slowly…
