This week on The Facts, my guest was Lora Hubbel, 1st term Representative in District 11. During the interview, Rep. Hubbel told me that someone in SD State Gov’t accepted $1 million from the Feds to establish a “health care exchange” — one of the primary building blocks of the health care reform act — yes the same one that the state of SD is suing over. I don’t know about you….but I find a huge disconnect here.
Now — according to Rep. Hubbel the only way SD could have agreed to take the money would be 1. Legislative approval — which did not happen. 2. Executive Order or 3. The Department of Health.
Rep Hubbel is promising to get to the bottom of how this happened and who approved it…..
