Perry Officially Rejects Texas Insurance Exchange

Posted on 11/16/2012 by with 2 comments

Texas Gov. Rick Perry has officially notified the federal government that the state will not set up an exchange to help people buy health insurance.

Perry sent a letter to Health and Human Services Commissioner Kathleen Sebelius on Thursday that Washington will have to set up the exchange instead.

The health insurance exchanges are required under the Affordable Care Act. They give people without insurance an online market place to buy health insurance that suits them. People with low incomes and special needs will get subsidized insurance when the exchanges begin operating in October 2013.

    There must be more to this,I cannot believe Rick Perry would do anything that would hurt the poor or elderly.We need to see the whole enchilada before we make judgement.Because he may be protecting us against stuff we dont know.
