The Obamacare ‘Fix’ is a punt…and politically that’s a good thing:
“We came away agreeing that there was a lot of difference of opinions as to whether or not we can or should do what he urged us to do last week,” Louisiana Insurance Commissioner and NAIC President Jim Donelon said later.
According to the Washington Post’s Wonkblog,which is tracking state commissioners’ responses to the fix: six states have agreed to it, six states have said they won’t, and seven states have publicly said they’re still deciding. The others haven’t made public statements.
again, this is letting states make Obamacare work or not. Now the Republicans that can say this was so important can be asked: did you compel your state regulator to enact the “keep your junk plan” provision?
