MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The top Republicans in the Vermont Legislature say they want the state’s health care exchange to succeed, but they say Vermonters are fed up with the problems the system is having.

Lt. Gov. Phil Scott, Senate Minority Leader Joe Benning and House Minority Leader Don Turner made the comments Tuesday, a day after the Shumlin administration said it was reducing its ties to the company that designed the flawed Vermont Health Connect system.

Scott says he doesn’t want the state to “go down this same path again” with a new contractor hired to continue work on the website.

Vermont Health Care Reform Chief Lawrence Miller says the state is committed to ensuring Vermonters can get the health insurance coverage they need through Vermont Health Connect.
