AFP-VA Opposes Health Care Exchange Legislation
Obamas exchanges will diminish choice, transparency and innovation
Richmond, VA Americans for Prosperity Virginia is calling the kettle black and opposing legislation to implement a so-called health care exchange. The Virginia House of Delegates last week introduced bills to create a Virginia Health Care Exchange, one of the mandates under the new federal healthcare law. AFP-Virginia encourages the General Assembly to oppose any action to establish a Health Care Exchange in Virginia until after the U.S. Supreme Court rules on the health care challenge this summer.

Recently, American Electric Power announced it will shut down several coal-fired power plants, including one in Giles County, simply to be able to afford compliance with new regulations from President Obamas Environmental Protection Agency. The closure will mean the loss of hundreds of jobs in the region and a dramatic increase in energy bills for all consumers.
