No Surprise; "Walker" And "Misleading" Appear In Same Health-Care Lede

The Capital Times notes what will not shock any Wisconsin voter or reader with a pulse:

Gov. Scott Walker’s announcement that he turned down the option for a state-run health exchange to protect taxpayers last week has state and national health care experts saying his rationale is misleading and flawed.

While individual states could arguably finance insurance exchanges with taxpayer money, the Affordable Care Act says insurance providers, not individual states or taxpayers, are expected to be responsible for the financial costs associated with running the exchanges.
