VA Gov. Leaves It to the Feds To Implement Health Exchanges

Good luck getting funding through the House


ALEXANDRIA — Gov. Bob McDonnell says it's going to be up to the federal government to bring the Affordable Care Act and its health-insurance exchanges to Virginia.

He's not going to do it.

With a week remaining before a Nov. 16 deadline for submitting plans for a health-insurance exchange to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, McDonnell laid the issue at the feet of the feds.
