    The Obama team is woefully behind its own schedule for implementing features of the legislation. The critical regulations outlining what the Obamacare insurance benefit will look like was supposed to be out more than six months ago. Now it looks like this regulation won't be dropped until after the election. This is just one key aspect of the program that is way behind the administration's own timeline.

    These facts alone should give proponents of the law pause. But the early experience with the elements of Obamacare that have already kicked in is downright dismal.
    The core of Obamacare doesn't get started until 2014, when state-based exchanges are supposed to be formed as places for consumers to buy the legislation's tightly regulated, subsidized coverage. But early features of Obamacare are already failing."

    Yes the Republicans have been pretty successful in undermining the ACA.

    "We're in a terrible economic climate, where medical utilization trends are way down. The cost of healthcare coverage should be falling as well. But premiums have risen far faster than overall inflation or GDP growth since Obamacare's passage. The regulations kicked in with no offsetting incentives to get people into the insurance pool to help absorb the costs. If the President wants to take credit for these costly insurance market reforms, he also has to accept blame for the rising costs.
    So what's left for the President to tout?
    Not much. Obamacare isn't even in full swing, and at every turn, the program is crumbling. The President's team is banking on a second term to try and right all of its fiascos but there's an emerging truth that the scheme is simply unworkable."

    The States are lagging in the establishment of the exchanges.

    The exchanges are the achilles heel.

    ...they're not implementing it fast enough for you?

    I guess that makes two of us!

    I don't know I don't think Romneycare will be so bad... Oh I mean Obamacare. Sorry I'm confusing it with Romneycare which has been around for a while and has been working very well. Doesn't Romney love mandates? Oops I mean Obama? Oh I'm so confused. Can some teapartiers clear it up for me? And explain why the idea of Universal Healthcare is divisive even though both candidates are defined by it?

    It's really pretty simple --- Do you understand the difference between state and federal government?

    It's just like those radical leftist states allowing gay marriage. If people of a state want to revamp their states health care -- more power to them!

    The federal gov't should stick to it's prime functions...

    I think they are deliberately stalling because people won't be happy when this plan is implemented. It was a mess from the start and should never have been shoved through the way it was. I remember the Dems saying they'd pass it, then fix some things later. As if the government has ever fixed anything.
