Because Jan Brewer won’t do it, the federal government will.
Brewer, who reiterated her opposition to the health care overhaul, said there are too many costs and questions associated with a state-run exchange.
She said she concluded that federal requirements meant the state “would wield little actual authority over its ‘state’ exchange.”
“The federal government would maintain oversight and control over virtually every aspect of our exchange, limiting our ability to meet the unique needs of Arizonans and the Arizona insurance market,” she said in a statement.
Of course the federal government doing it means ever more federal control.
