Governor Andrew Cuomo issued an executive order Thursday creating a health care exchange in New York, an online marketplace where consumers can shop for competing health insurance plans.
The move brings New York into compliance with President Obama's Affordable Care Act which requires each state to have a health exchange by 2014. 11 other states have set up the exchanges.
Of course, some state lawmakers aren't too happy with the governor's decision, namely with the fact that the executive order was issued while the very constitutionality of Obama's Affordable Care Act is under review by the US Supreme Court. - The Huffington Post
