ANNAPOLIS — As state leaders scramble to remedy problems with Maryland’s health care exchange, state Sen. David Brinkley is pushing for an independent investigation into the troubled rollout.

On Tuesday, the state’s lieutenant governor and others involved with the health exchange laid out their efforts to help those who haven’t been able to secure insurance due to the problems. But Brinkley, R-District 4, argued that to move forward, state lawmakers also need to understand root causes.

    You only have to look across the border to Richmond to see what a fine job the Repubs have done running VA. Now where did I put that envelope of cash?

    I'm guessing Brinkley's concerned about anger management being covered under the new health care guidelines. As for national health care being a waste... http://www.cnbc.com/id/100840148

    That the 80% would stand in the way of the 15% who need healthcare insurance just means it is time to end healthcare as an employment benefit and make everyone buy off the exchange. Just spending money for the sake of spending money.

    Burrell wrote that CareFirst has been dealing directly with the federal exchange in Virginia and has found that “there are many serious and persistent operating and technical issues that undermine effective enrollment” in that program as well, including not being able to correct and maintain life-event changes for people once they enroll.

    There absolutely should be an investigation of omalleys no bid $170 MILLION waste of taxpayer money and brownie's incompetence as the person supposedly in charge...the only thing he's in charge of is running for his next office so he can continue feeding at the public trough and his commentary quoted in this paper that there can't be an investigation now w/o "pulling people off the front lines" and "he is focused on the fix" is a sick joke ...he wants it put off till after the election...two losers

    Exactly! These Reps have no ideas. They just want to "stir the pot" like the outsiders and underdogs they are.

    Yawn. How much taxpayer money does he want to spend to find out what is already known: the software was bad. It's being fixed. Move on. Do something useful.
