Idaho Gets Conditional Exchange OK

Emilie Ritter Saunders/StateImpact offers this snippet from the Department of Health & Human Services, reporting that Idaho has received conditional approval to operate a state-based exchange:

Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius today announced that more states are on track to implement the health care law and establish health insurance marketplaces, or Exchanges, in their states.  California, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, Vermont and Utah are conditionally approved today to operate a State-based Exchange, and Arkansas is conditionally approved to operate a State Partnership Exchange.  HHS is also providing more guidance to states today on marketplaces that will be operated in partnership with the federal government. More here.

Question: Do you support the Tea Party attempt in Idaho to stop the exchange?
