On his Facebook wall, Jeff Ward of the Reagan Republicans expresses disappointment in the 23-12 Idaho Senate vote in favor of Gov. Otter's proposed state health exchange:
So disappointed in our State Senate. Reagan Republicans have fought against Obamacare in every form since our founding and unlike others, we refuse to give up, surrender freely forgo our rights as Americans. We have not lost! Our hope to stand against Obamacare lies in the Idaho House of Representatives where we pray there are enough Republicans who will not surrender our liberties. Attend the Town Hall Saturday or call your Representative today.
Question: Do you think the House will also support the health exchange?
