ObamaCare ka-boom

As if we needed them, two more reasons why the ObamaTax is imploding. One we've already covered:

"Almost half of the insurance exchanges set up by states are struggling financially"

Again, this should surprise exactly no one.

But the Daily Caller article then posits an interesting possibility:

"[O]fficials are considering raising fees on insurers, asking the state for more money and working with other states to improve their exchange. Connecticut plans to sell advice and strategy to struggling states."

Given its history, seems like the only bit of Connecticut's advice of any value would be on how not to set up or run an Exchange.

But what's remarkable to me is how many folks still don't 'get' that insurers don't pay these fees, and that states don't have money: customers pay the fees, and tax-payers provide the funds.

So the only thing they're going to accomplish is higher premiums (so fewer folks buying or keeping plans) and raising taxes (same same). Where do they think all this money's coming from?

Oh yeah, us proles.
