    Excerpts:

    Hawaii is taking its troubled ObamaCare insurance exchange off life support, the governor’s office announced Friday, the latest addition to a growing number of state exchanges forced to close after operations became unsustainable.
    ----------------
    The shutdown comes after federal taxpayers dropped more than $200 million into the exchange, which critics called a waste of taxpayer money.

    "The $200 million was a complete waste of tax dollars that could have been used for much more productive efforts," Reg Baker, a well-known CPA in Hawaii who for many years was the chief financial officer for the health insurance plan, HMAA, told FoxNews.com last month.

    While many of the state's Democrats praised the ObamaCare exchange when it launched in October 2013, it was riddled with trouble from the start. The web portal never worked properly despite the state spending $74 million on a contract with CGI to build and maintain it.
    ----------------
    Hawaii is not the only ObamaCare exchange to be plagued by troubles. Despite the government investing $4.5 billion into state-run exchanges, Oregon, Massachusetts, Maryland, Vermont, New Mexico and Nevada have also shut down their operations.

    It's strange that all the libs on here that are basically RSS Newsfeeds never post stuff like this.


    What's strange about it. bonehead? It's all they've got to prop up the mantra! Jeez! I'm still laughing at some local liberals from last night trying to make a big deal out of Rubio's THREE speeding tickets in 18 years...They wanted to argue with me that he had 18... I made them read the articles aloud. Then I showed them that it came from Hillary's hitmen not the NYT. End of discussion. LOL!

    As for Hawaii's Obamacare imploding... Why would anyone expect it to be better than....

    NSA @ airports with a 96% failure rate...
    Remember Cash for Clunkers?
    "Shovel Ready Jobs" in the 2nd stimulus bill...

    But you guys can keep your doctor and will pay less than before....

    Pass me that crack pipe you're hitting on Barry!

    Saw the NSA story a few days ago. Pretty dismal performance.


    I did too and didn't do a thread about it because I thought for sure you would.

    But continuing all the red flags we've had about how Obamacare would turn out...

    Ineptitude, mismanagement of funds, overspending, bureaucratic red tape and virulent incompetency plus a thoroughly consistent history of never producing any progressive social engineering scheme at its projected (that means >> as sold to the voters) costs are the consistent hallmarks of every single hare brained progressive project since the 1920s like the veterans administration which has NOT SOLVED the problems that caused protests from veterans 90 years ago.

    So why would any rational being be surprised about Obamacare?
    OH OH OH. I KNOW THE ANSWER!

    WE rational human beings aren't surprised.
