"Here we go again. It was only a couple of months ago that the White House announced that the Small Business Health Options Program, or SHOP, national online health insurance exchanges included in Obamacare wouldn't be fully ready until 2015 due to "operational challenges." At that time, the administration stated that the exchanges would still be functional on schedule in October of this year, but small businesses would only be able to select one insurance plan option for their employees.

Now, the Government Accountability Office, or GAO, which serves as the watchdog for federal agencies, says the situation might be worse. According to the GAO, implementation of the federally operated SHOP exchanges in 33 states and individual exchanges in 34 states is behind schedule. Whether the exchanges can be successfully launched in October "cannot yet be determined," in the GAO's opinion."

Great point. Give this to the private sector and they'd have it on schedule.

Government is the problem. I will tell you one thing will happen for sure. Less will have health insurance in the future than have it now.
