“Our mission is to provide consumers protection through education and fair but vigilant regulation of Ohio competitive insurance market,” Taylor says in the video. “On our site you can find information about all types of insurance, including auto, homeowners, health, Medicare, long-term care and life insurance.”This all leads one to suspect that Taylor's true mission is to hew to the Republican Party line and do everything possible to sabotage Obamacare in her state. So, if you know someone in Ohio who could qualify for Obamacare, do the state's job and send them to HealthCare.gov so they can find out about their options.
But there is little to be found about the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, although beginning Oct. 1, Ohioans can start signing up for policies through a federally run insurance marketplace.
If you're in Ohio, you might not be aware that you can sign up for Obamacare starting next Tuesday. That's because the Republican state government, including Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor, who also is director of the Department of Insurance, is refusing to provide information about it. The homepage for the Department of Insurance has nothing, no link to, information about the health insurance exchange. It does, however, have a video of Taylor.
