"Because no insurance company will enter a market where they really don't know if they have customers, if they will be paid back the money that they have to front for the subsidies, if the rules that they understand and know about are going to stay in place". The public seems to have reached a remarkably level-headed conclusion: Obamacare is better than taking away whatever they got under the law, so let's try to fix it.

Similarly, Humana, which has already announced that it will not provide any plans under ACA exchanges next year, leaves many counties in Tennessee without any ACA insurance options. And in areas without much hospital competition, "prices are 30 to 50% higher for everything". Which, Sorenson said, will give more time for the ACA to develop and succeed.
