Obamacare exchange partnerships approved in several Republican-led states


Obamacare health insurance exchanges have been approved in four GOP-led states.

In Kansas, Gov. Sam Brownback rejected partnering with the federal government to set up the web-based insurance marketplaces, saying the Affordable Care Act was an overreach by the federal government.

But in Idaho, a spokesman for Republican Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter said, "We're on track for Idaho having a say over how this process works, instead of having the federal government dictate all of it."

Unless he had Insurance Commissioner Nancy Praeger do our exchange, the Federales will probably do a better job. When is that Kansas health insurance cooperative going to start operating? Maybe it will be cheaper and better than Blue Cross.

Or more likely, Blue Cross will participate in the exchange. No sense in turning away new customers.

Heck of a job, Brownie. Keep fighting against lower cost health insurance for Kansas residents. The Koch brothers are counting on you.
