But it did more than that. They also set minimum requirements that were higher than before. They set allocations that insurance companies had to spent on actual health care costs (I believe 80% on health care and 20% on administration).

The only real debate should be whether the current failures of O-care are because of the people running it are failing or if the problem is the law (and HHS regulations) that make it impossible to work properly?

Would the rollout have been smoother if someone else was running it or was the law so awfully designed, nobody could have made it work well?
