Maryland’s Obamacare website, the Maryland Health Connection, isn’t the only website that needs fixing.
Lt. Governor Anthony Brown’s campaign website still claims under the “Real Results” section:
"Led the nation in implementing the Affordable Care Act, which independent studies show will reduce the number of uninsured in Maryland by 50%, and create $3 billion in annual economic activity and 26,000 jobs in Maryland by 2020; "
"Implementing Obamacare: As the leader of Maryland’s efforts to improve health care and Co-Chair of the Health Care Reform Coordinating Council, Lt. Governor Brown has positioned Maryland as the national leader in the implementation of the Affordable Care Act."
A more accurate description would be “Anthony Brown led the nation in botching implementation of Obamacare, and positioned Maryland as a national leader in how public officials can evade and obfuscate to avoid blame for screwing up.”
