    and will work efficiently for the other 25 states who chose to go with the federal one.

    As for the other 25 states who are going to spend a lot of tax dollars in a DIY effort, the result won't be better and could be much worse.

    Democratic Leaders must be very clear they stand with the working class of our country. Democrats must hold the line in demanding that deficit reduction is done fairly -- not on the backs of the elderly, the sick, children and the poor.

    •  Nope -- those states have public emloyees too (0+ / 0-)

      To the best of my knowledge, these states have civil servants and also have a multi-choice health insurance benefit plans available to those employees.

      If you see or hear ads for an "open season" in your area that means the state employees are selecting their health insurer for the following year.

      It's the path of least resistance -- all the heavy lifting was done years ago when these benefit plans were set up.

      This nonsense about not having enough time to set up exchanges, is just that, nonsense.
