Obamacare in crisis as 2013 approaches
http://www.humanevents.com/2012/11/26/obamacare-in-crisis-as......

Two weeks ago, I tallied up the score in the state rebellion against Obamacare. About half of the states have either forthrightly refused to set up their ObamaCare insurance exchanges, or opted for a state/federal “partnership” arrangement. Most of the 16 outright refusals have come from Republican governors, who generally cite three reasons for insisting that the federal government run its own Obamacare exchanges in their states:

1. The governors don’t want to get saddled with the expense of setting up and running those exchanges.

2. The states feel that they would be very junior partners in the Obamacare enterprise, without much in the way of local control, so the whole concept of a “state-run” exchange is really just a fig leaf of federalism for a monstrous central bureaucracy.

3. Perhaps the most damning indictment offered by the recalcitrant governors is that Obamacare’s regulations are still largely unwritten. The governors felt they were being asked to sign a contract that still contained a shocking number of blank pages and penciled-in notes.
