Tell Your Governor If You Want Affordable Health Coverage!
The Obama administration has extended the deadline for states to submit their "blueprint" plans for state exchanges from November 16 until December 14.

Will your state be ready?  Check out where your state is in the process by consulting the Kaiser Family Foundation's online map.  Tell your Governor to stop delaying and commit to operating a state health insurance exchange!
