The New Mexico Health Insurance Exchange has refused to hand over personal information about thousands of the state’s working poor to commercial insurance companies amid privacy concerns.

    The stench of desperation lingers in the air. Funny how all those in favor of this mess still have not signed up for it. And being that NM is poor state in more ways than one, you would figure people would be flocking for their socialized insurance. You people voted for Oblameo and the dumocrates that passed this bill make them proud go and give up your freedom sign up!
