The remnants of our state’s mainstream media and their partners over at BluePrintNC have been obsessed with beating on NCDHHS secretary Aldona Wos. We got warnings — just before October 1 — about how North Carolina would be one of the worst-hit states by ObamaCare.
Aldona Wos has very little to do with any of this. But state Insurance Commissioner Wayne Goodwin DOES:
[…] You probably think the Department regulates insurance companies and agents — you are correct, we do. Any insurance business in this state first must be approved by the Commissioner, and companies and agents must meet rigorous standards before they receive a license to do that business. […]
We get powderpuff coverage like this about Goodwin skedaddling to NYC for a fundraiser. But where are the tough questions? I mean, the guy DOES brag that “any insurance business” in the state MUST come through him.
If our mainstream media had ANY integrity they’d be putting Goodwin and his actions / inaction re: O-Care under the microscope. I guess we’re going to have to wait for Gerrick Brenner and Chris Fitzsimon to give them permission.
