Obamacare: We had to pass it first to see it was unimplementable

I had to throw that title up there in honor of Nancy Pelosi who once said about Obamacare, "we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it."

Of course these idiots who voted for it didn't take into consideration even the most basic of scenarios: implementing and establishing insurance exchanges for 51 states with different insurance markets and eligibility requirements IF NECESSARY.

Obama faces huge challenge in setting up insurance exchanges:
The Obama administration faces major logistical and financial challenges in creating health insurance exchanges for states that have declined to set up their own systems. 
Sixteen states — most of them governed by Republicans — have said they will not set up their own systems, forcing the federal government to come up with one instead. 
Another five states said they want a federal-state partnership, while four others are considering partnerships. 
It's a situation no one anticipated when the Affordable Care Act was written. The law assumed states would create and operate their own exchanges, and set aside billions in grants for that purpose.
Why is this a surprise to team Obama? They jammed this law down our collective throats with the majority of Americans AGAINST IT. So...SURPRISE...SURPRISE...they're not getting a large number of states to cooperate and fall into place like they HAD PLANNED. So now the feds will have to create these exchanges for those states.

This of course will lead to higher costs to implement the program and additional fees for insurance:
Experts have predicted that the department will soon have to tap budgets from its other programs to cover exchange costs. Other have said it might charge fees on the insurance purchased in its exchanges once they are launched.
