2011: NC House Republicans all for Obamacare State Health Exchange (Video)

Back in 2011, NC House Republicans sponsored and passed unanimously a bill establishing a state-based Obamacare health exchange.  While the bill they passed never got a vote in the NC Senate, they face another chance this week to show their support for a state health exchange under Obamacare.  This week they  will likely vote on a NC Senate bill that blocks any state health exchange in addition to blocking Obamacare’s expansion of health care to poor people.  What will they do?
