Goedde Has Doubts About Exchange

Item: Goedde: Doubts about exchange: Legislator serving on health care reform committee/Alecia Warren, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: A Coeur d'Alene legislator tapped with analyzing the implementation of the Affordable Care Act has doubts about a state insurance exchange. Sen. John Goedde is among 12 Idaho lawmakers and health insurance experts selected for a committee that will recommend how Idaho should carry out aspects of President Obama's new health care reform. Cobbled by Gov. Butch Otter, the group is tasked with weighing whether Idaho should create its own health insurance exchange, or participate in a federally run version. The reform only allows for one or the other, Goedde said. There are ostensible challenges to both, he added.

Question: Will Idaho take the proper steps to deal with court-approved Obamacare in good faith?
