Gov. Nathan Deal was on Fox News this morning, explaining why Georgia and 16 other states (so far) will not set up the health care insurance exchanges required by the Affordable Care Act:
The federal government will set up the operations in Georgia and those other states. Said Deal:
“Historically, the regulation of insurance has been a state function. That’s why we have state insurance commissioners. We don’t have a federal insurance commissioner. We will have one, of course – maybe not in name, but in practicality.
It is not politics. It is the cost and the question of state control of an issue that’s so important to the citizens of our state.”
