Obamacare Gets Stunning Rebuke from 25 States

Dec. 14 has come and gone, and President Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act — better known as Obamacare — has received a stunning blow.

State governments had until Dec. 14 to decide whether they would build their own health-insurance exchanges, online services that allow individuals to purchase private health insurance if it wasn’t provided by their employers.

The exchanges now have been rebuked by half the states, which have refused to participate in this critical component of Obamacare.
