Gaetz: Dems Blind to Obamacare Complexity


Florida Senate President Don Gaetz is criticizing Democratic support for the Affordable Care Act, saying U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson in particular is ignoring the complexity of Obamacare.

Writing in the Palm Beach Post, Gaetz said Florida had bipartisan support when it opted to not formally approve health exchange insurance rates during the first two years of the ACA. 

“How do state regulators protect the public from unfair rates when they don’t know who will purchase the plans, or what services they might use?” he wrote in the Post.
