With $250 million of taxpayer money invested in the failed Maryland Health Exchange, I am outraged by the lack of an investigation into this boondoggle ("It's about time," Feb. 25).

Annapolis needs to stop protecting the chosen ones — Martin O'Malley and his protege, Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown — and get to the bottom of this ASAP.

The failure of the health exchange is as mind boggling as are those who were in charge.

What is more important, protecting our failed leaders or having a real investigation into what happened and who is responsible regardless of the politics involved?

Remember, that is $250 million of taxpayers' money that has been wasted.

Imagine what a Democratic majority would say if there were a sitting Republican governor in Annapolis instead.

John Jackson, Baltimore
