Gov. Haley reaffirms no to health exchange

(Associated Press) Gov. Nikki Haley told the federal government Thursday that South Carolina won’t set up a state health exchange, saying President Barack Obama’s re-election did not change her stance.

In a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Haley says the exchanges called for under the federal health care law known as Obamacare are state-based in name only.

“Instead, they simply pass along to the state the burdens of a new and cumbersome bureaucracy,” Haley wrote.
