GOP hypocrisy
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2012, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

It is interesting that Utah's Republican legislative leaders rejected the opportunity for Utah to design and operate its own health insurance exchange ("Republican lawmakers give thumbs down on health exchanges," Tribune, Nov. 15).

Most times, these GOP lawmakers bemoan federal intrusion; but on this issue, they're ceding control and leaving it to Washington bureaucrats to regulate Utah's insurance markets.

This hypocrisy would be amusing, except that it leaves Utahns powerless in the application of an important provision of the Affordable Care Act.
