Letter: Whose fault is it, GOP?
The Republicans are complaining loudly about the narrow network of health-care providers in Anthem’s lone entry into the New Hampshire implementation of the Affordable Care Act. But the question voters should be asking is this: If the Republicans had not fought so hard to prevent the ACA in any form, if they had not delayed its implementation as long as possible, if they had allowed New Hampshire to build its own health care exchange, would more vendors have stepped forward to offer plans? Would competition among such vendors have given the residents of the state more choices? We already see several other companies readying plans for next year. If New Hampshire has gotten on board with the ACA early on, they might have been ready this year. The GOP loves to blame others for the messes it creates, but voters know better.
