In case you didn’t believe that we have a serious problem at the highest levels of the Republican Party, take a look at this news story from The Hill.  Bill Frist (RINO-TN) was the Republican Senate Majority Leader during the critical Bush years.  Well, while most conservatives are urging governors to reject and disrupt the Obamacare exchanges, he is urging them to adopt the exchanges:

Former GOP Sen. Bill Frist (Tenn.) urged fellow Republicans Wednesday to embrace the insurance exchanges that are central to President Obama’s signature healthcare reform law.

Republicans in both chambers are dead-set on repealing the whole of the law, and a growing list of GOP governors is refusing to adopt central provisions, including the insurance exchanges.

But Frist, a prominent heart transplant surgeon who was Senate majority leader from 2003 through 2006, said that’s a mistake. The exchanges, he wrote in an op-ed in The Week magazine, are “perhaps the most innovative, market-driven, and ultimately constructive part of the law.”
