Goedde: We Lost Obamacare Fight

The Senate is now back to debate on SB 1042. Sen. John Goedde, R-Coeur d’Alene, said, “If we opt for a federal exchange, there’s only two choices. … They only have to provide two, and you can bet your bottom dollar neither one of those two will be an Idaho company.” Goedde, who disclosed for the record that he’s a licensed insurance agent, said, “We’re not here to debate Obamacare. We’re here to debate exchanges.” He said when Idaho joined other states to challenge the national health care law in the U.S. Supreme Court, “That was our best chance. … And guess what? We lost”/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.

Question: Do you think that those pushing hardest against a state health exchange are simply refusing to believe that they lost the Obamacare fight?
