Chris Christie Won't Do Health Care Exchanges in New Jersey

-By Jimmie Bise Jr - LibertyNews Network

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie vetoed a bill setting up health care exchanges:

Gov. Chris Christie vetoed legislation establishing a state-run health insurance exchange on Thursday, blaming the federal government for failing to provide the answers he said he needs to make a fiscally sound decision on the best way to comply with the Affordable Care Act.

The governor said he has not eliminated any of the options available to states to comply with the national health care overhaul. But, he said it would be irresponsible to choose one over the others   without knowing the costs of each.

“New Jersey and all other states still await substantial federal guidance on the functioning of all three types of exchanges,” Christie said in his veto message. “To be sure, the decision of whether to move forward with a state-based exchange can only be fully understood when competitively compared to the overall value of the other options.”  

I would suggest there is only one answer to making ObamaCare "fiscally sound."

Don't do it.
