NC House Republicans passed health exchange unanimously in 2011

With all the health exchange discussion – including much Republican complaint that there isn’t enough time to do a health exchange or complaint that the federal government is trying to control NC’s exchange – it is worth remembering that on May 25, 2011 the NC House overwhelmingly passed a North Carolina health exchange bill [1] 83-34. ┬áNot a single Republican voted against the health exchange in the House. ┬áThe bill was never considered in the Senate as the “will Obamacare make it” waiting game for the US Supreme Court decision and the outcome of the presidential election began.
