This won’t surprise anybody who wasn’t among the target audience that Jonathan Gruber described so eloquently, but state exchanges set up under Obamacare are taking a swan dive into the graveyard of expensive and horrible ideas:

State-run health insurance markets that offer coverage under President Barack Obama’s health law are struggling with high costs and disappointing enrollment. These challenges could lead more of them to turn over operations to the federal government or join forces with other states.

Hawaii’s marketplace, the latest cautionary tale, was awarded $205 million in federal startup grants. It has spent about $139 million and enrolled 8,200 customers for individual coverage in 2015. Unable to sustain itself, the state marketplace is turning over sign-ups to the federal HealthCare.gov for 2016.

Twelve states and the District of Columbia fully control their markets. Experts estimate about half face financial difficulties.

And now, thanks to the Supreme Court’s ruling that has turned the ACA colloquialism into “SCOTUScare,” states can just turn to the federal government with their hands out to cover cleanup costs for the Obamacare Hindenburg disaster.

This is my favorite part of the AP story:

Federal taxpayers invested nearly $5 billion in startup grants to the states, expecting that state markets would become self-sustaining. Most of the federal money has been spent, and states have to face the consequences.

Federal taxpayers invested nearly $5 billion”? They spelled “Democrats” wrong.
