NJ rejects state-based health exchange - The Hill's Healthwatch

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) declined to set up a state-based insurance exchange under the healthcare law Thursday — the same day he met with President Obama on Hurricane Sandy aid.

The move will be welcomed by conservatives who blamed Christie for praising Obama's response to the storm. Sandy hit just before the election and distracted national media coverage from Obama's campaign against Mitt Romney, who lost.

In a statement, Christie said New Jersey would default to a federally run exchange because the Obama administration did not provide enough information on alternatives.
