Around the country, governors and state legislatures are under pressure from the Obama Administration and the federal government to create and implement the statewide health care exchanges that are a major part of ObamaCare.
These federally-regulated “exchanges” will replace the state individual market in health care with crony collusion between insurance companies and government bureaucrats. And, on the losing side of that deal will be the consumer.
Recently, in New Jersey, Gov. Chris Christie earned our thanks and appreciation for vetoing legislation that would have created one of these exchanges in the Garden State.
Now, another governor deserves our thanks — New Hampshire’s Democrat Gov. John Lynch.
On Monday, Gov. Lynch signed HB 1297 which would prevent New Hampshire government officials from setting up an ObamaCare exchange without legislative approval. Spurred by analysis form the state’s Josiah Bartlett Center for Public Policy that said if federal officials wanted set up an exchange in the state they could pay for it themselves, Gov. Lynch acted immediately on the legislation sent to his desk.
Gov. Lynch certainly deserves our thanks for ensuring that the federal government won’t intercede on behalf of the Obama Administration to set up an exchange that the state legislature and the governor haven’t authorized.
You can use the information below to contact Gov. Lynch and thank him for acting to protect the citizens of his state from gross federal overreach:

While you’re at it, would you take a moment to urge Gov. Lynch to veto any bills that may come to his desk in the future setting up ObamaCare exchanges in his state?
It’s significant that this action has come from a Democrat governor, so please be sure that he hears from you!
Thank you for all you are doing to help in the fight against ObamaCare.
