Majority of States Opt Out of ObamaCare Exchanges

In the 12/14/2012 Investors Business Daily, David Hogberg notes "26 States Decline ObamaCare Exchange".

Here's the opening:
The federal government will likely be involved in running the ObamaCare exchange in at least 30 states, 26 of which expressly declined to establish state exchanges. One health-policy expert refers to it as an "administrative nightmare" for the Department of Health and Human Services.
The article also notes that the federal government didn't expect to have to run any exchanges themselves.  I doubt this next step into government-run health insurance will go smoothly for them. (Via Instapundit.)
