DECEMBER 17,2012: A debate with Commissioner Mike Chaney over the Mississippi Health Insurance Exchange

BY: B. Keith Plunkett @Keithplunkett
12-17-12: For all that Mississippi Department of Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney says he knows about the implementation of the ObamaCare compliant Mississippi Health Insurance Exchange, there is still much that he admittedly doesn’t know since many regulations are still being written. But, according to the Commissioner, that’s okay. He’s not worried.

I’m sorry. But that just doesn’t give me a great deal of confidence.

I had the pleasure of getting to discuss the issue directly with Commissioner Chaney when he decided to call into The JT Show, a statewide radio show, and take me to task on a few things a week ago. In the end, Chaney’s explanations did nothing but leave me more confident than ever that this government-engineer-as-you-go health exchange is big government gone haywire.
