Reading Dan Rodricks ' recent column about who is to blame for Maryland's failed health exchange, my reaction was simple: It's about time ( "Troubled Maryland health exchange could spark political fallout," April 3). In recent weeks there have been many articles about the failure of the state's health-care exchange and what to do about it, and I've been astonished that Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown is literally nowhere to be found. Maryland, whose politics and constituency fall in line with the Affordable Care Act, should have been right up there with Connecticut and Kentucky, whose health-care exchanges have served their uninsured well.
