Health law critics seek to gut it by attacking exchanges

Bloomberg, May 28, 2013
Opponents of President Barack Obama's health-care law are gearing up for a new round of attacks, this time targeting the legislation's insurance exchanges that would expand coverage to millions of Americans. Heritage Action for America, the advocacy arm of the Heritage Foundation, and the Tea Party-aligned group FreedomWorks will push Congress to cut off funding for the exchanges in the debate later this year over raising the debt ceiling, the Washington-based groups said. The chairman of the advocacy group Restore America's Voice, Ken Hoagland, said he plans to warn people through advertising about the "dysfunctional" exchanges.
