From the Craig/Haddaway Campaign:
Maryland Governor candidate David Craig’s Lt. Governor running mate, and Del. Jeannie Haddaway, released the following statement today about health care point man and Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown’s General Assembly committee testimony regarding the state’s healthcare exchange, Maryland Health Connection.
“The hearing in Annapolis today confirms what we have been saying all along – trying to solve a bureaucratic nightmare with more bureaucracy doesn’t work,” said Haddaway.
“This is another waste of taxpayers money and creates even more opportunity for people to fall through the cracks because they can’t get coverage or because they can’t prove they tried to get coverage from the exchange.
“It is unbelievable to me that the State does not know how many people are affected. Why are they covering up the numbers and why are they covering up the fact that people can get coverage by simply going to a local insurance broker in their neighborhood?
“They are so afraid to admit the extent of the Exchange’s problems that they are willing to choose politics over people yet again.”
