NH Watchdog Poll- Health Insurance Exchanges Blocked
Print This Post
This week, Governor John Lynch signed HB 1297 into law, blocking New Hampshire from creating a Health Insurance Exchange under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, known as ObamaCare. Supporters, including Lynch at one points, argued that the state should set up an exchange in order to avoid federal mandates. Opponents countered that a state exchange would only have the illusion of local control, while leaving New Hampshire taxpayers on the hook.
