GOP says Maryland moving too fast on health reform

ANNAPOLIS — Maryland Republicans say Gov. Martin O’Malley’s administration is moving too quickly to implement federal health care reform being reviewed by the courts.

Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown says Republicans have “chosen to put politics” ahead of people’s health.

The Maryland House Republican Caucus discussed their proposals at a news conference Thursday. They include amending the state’s constitution so that residents are not required to buy a particular health care plan.

Brown is leading the Democratic administration’s effort to implement health care reform. He says he’s determined to build a national model for its implementation and cut the number of uninsured Marylanders in half by 2020.
