Last week, Mary Fallin attempted to answer the critics to her using the $54 million Healthcare Grant to implement healthcare exchanges. These are my response to the same questions…. What is a health insurance exchange? Not mentioned nearly enough in The Patient Protection and Affordable care Act (PPACA) debate have been these insurance exchanges.
The measures included a state party rule change to be proposed at next month’s state convention requiring censure hearings for Republican officeholders who do not adhere to “core principles” that include the unconstitutionality of all gun regulations and the belief that life is the result of “an act between a man and a woman,” and begins at the moment of fertilization.
The proposed rule also would require elected Republicans to work for “drastic” reductions in taxes and mandatory fees.
“This could be big,” said delegate Molly McKay, who later in the convention was elected county vice chairman without opposition. “This could be the biggest thing since we repealed slavery.”
