Gov. Butch Otter responded aggressively to challenger Russ Fulcher’s continued hammering of Otter for creating the state-run health insurance exchange, Your Health Idaho. Otter says Fulcher, R-Meridian, the Idaho Senate’s majority caucus chairman, “favors allowing the Obama administration to impose a federal insurance exchange in Idaho.” That, Otter says, would open the door to outfits like Planned Parenthood helping customers decide on health insurance policies. Pro-choice Planned Parenthood, of course, is particularly unpopular among tea party conservatives Fulcher counts on to help him defeat Otter in the May 20 Republican primary. Opposition to the exchange is Fulcher’s top issue/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman. More here.
Question: Are you planning to have as much fun as I am, listening to Otter and Fulcher hammer at each other?
