Cannon Fodder/LinkFest

FoIB Michael Cannon, the Cato Institute's director of health policy studies, has a trio of interesting, provocative and insightful posts up:

Oops, Maybe ObamaCare’s Cost Controls Won’t Work after All wherein MC reports that the Congressional Budget Office just revealed they aren’t very successful, after all:

"In nearly every program, spending was either unchanged or increased relative to the spending that would have occurred in the absence of the program"

Ooops indeed.

■ *Will the Feds Be Ready With the Fallback Insurance Exchanges by October 2013? As we've repeatedly pointed out here at InsureBlog, the Exchanges aren't really the panacea they're being touted as. The reality is that less than half of the 58 states are actually on-track with having their Exchanges "ready to go" on schedule.

Quelle surprise.

Wisconsin Stiff-Arms ObamaCare Seems that Badger State Gov Scott Walker has told the Feds "thanks, but no thanks," and has ""announced Wisconsin will return the $37 million “Early Innovator Grant” it received from the Obama administration under the health care law."

Not just no, but Hell No.
