We Won't Build That: States Resist ObamaCare Insurance Exchanges

At IBD, "ObamaCare: 21 States Reject Exchanges On Cost, Rules":
ObamaCare's subsidized insurance exchanges are supposed to be up and running in little more than a year, putting a key piece of the federal health care law into action.

But it's unclear that will happen, especially with a growing number of states saying they don't want the cost and regulatory headaches.

The exchanges are where consumers without employer-based coverage will shop for insurance under ObamaCare and receive a tax credit toward its purchase if they are eligible. But 21 states have expressly declined to set up their own exchanges, with nine others still undecided ahead of the Dec. 14 deadline.
Federalism in action. Gee, is that racist?
