Democratic Governor Deals Blow to Obamacare?
God bless New Hampshire, an outpost of sanity in otherwise deep-blue New
England. In keeping with the Granite State’s strongly libertarian political
culture, New Hampshire’s legislative Republicans led a charge to prevent the
state from implementing a health insurance exchange program under Obamacare. The
result: the state’s Democratic governor buckled. From the state’s free-market
think tank, the Josiah Bartlett Center for Public Policy:
Governor John Lynch signed legislation blocking implementation
of a health insurance exchange in New Hampshire. The Obama Administration has
been urging states to set up exchanges under the Patient Protection and
Affordable Care Act, known as ObamaCare.
