Maryland Set To Replace Troubled Health Exchange With Connecticut?s System











More news about Md. politics Marylanders will be able to use the exchange even as it is being overhauled. The first enrollment period opened Oct. 1 and closes Monday for insurance coverage that kicks in this year. A second open enrollment period starts Nov. 15. Like Maryland, Connecticut was one of the first and most enthusiastic states to embrace the idea of building its own insurance exchange rather than using a federal site to implement the laws sweeping changes in health-care coverage.

Poll: Obama health law fails to gain support






While 39 percent said it should remain as passed, 43 percent wanted to keep it with changes. Larry Carroll, 64, a church deacon from Cameron, W.Va., says he's strongly opposed to the health care law, but doesn't have high hopes for repeal. "The federal bureaucracy simply seems to be too strong," he said. "The federal bureaucracy is like an anaconda." Teresa Stevens, a factory supervisor from Jacksonville, Fla., said her two adult sons shopped for coverage on the health insurance exchanges and found it too expensive. "There are so many different things they say about online (the law) that are not true," she said. "It's not affordable." A supporter of former Democratic President Bill Clinton, Stevens said the economy has soured for working people under Obama. "Everything is so expensive, not just health care," she said. The poll found that much of the slippage for the health care law over the last four years has come from a drop in support, not an increase in opposition. In April of 2010, soon after the law passed, 50 percent of Americans said they were opposed to it, while 39 percent were in favor.
