You have to love Texans for telling it like it is! Texas Governor Rick Perry told HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius that Texas “will not implement the so-called state exchange.” Unlike others who may pander on the subject, Gov. Perry wrote bluntly to Sebelius:
“It would not be fiscally responsible to put hard-working Texans on the financial hook for an unknown amount of money to operate a system under rules that have not even been written. As long as the federal government has the ability to force unknown mandates and costs upon our citizens, while retaining the sole power in approving what an exchange looks like, the notion of a state exchange is merely an illusion.”
