Key point: "The State House guardians of ignorance were armed to the teeth with objections to Obamacare and weapons of obstruction. But they were outflanked by people who believe the state’s residents have a right to know what their options are for obtaining health insurance under the federal Affordable Care Act, which is scheduled to go into effect on Jan. 1. Kudos to the state Health Exchange Advisory Board, the Insurance Department, the federal Center for Medicaid Services and the New Hampshire Health Plan, the veteran operator of the state’s high-risk health insurance pool. They found a way for New Hampshire to accept a $5.4 million grant to pay for an effort to educate consumers about the federal health care law and the New Hampshire health insurance marketplace."
