The board of the Maryland Health Exchange will vote tomorrow, 4/1/14, on whether to fully replace its dysfunctional online state exchange with Connecticut's system and technology.
On 3/11/14, Fox News' Bill Hemmer interviewed Rep. Harris about the dysfunctional online Maryland health insurance exchange. Last month, Rep. Harris and Rep. Kingston called for the Inspector General (IG) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to investigate the waste and abuse of federal dollars that went toward building the Md. exchange. The IG recently responded to their request and agreed to launch an investigation.
On the House floor, Rep. Harris spoke about the situation in the Ukraine--the country where his mother grew up--and voiced his support for H.R. 4152, a bill that would provide for the costs of loan guarantees for the Ukraine. The bill was introduced by Rep. Hal Rogers, Chairman of the House Committee on Appropriations.

The President's health care plan is going to raise health care premiums for 11 million Americans who work at small businesses. There is nothing affordable about the Affordable Care Act!
