After failing to launch a fully functioning Obamacare enrollment Web site, it looks like Oregon’s health insurance exchange will be taken over by the Obama administration. It’s a sign of how deeply flawed the Oregon enrollment system is despite initial lofty hopes, and a further indication of how much HealthCare.gov has improved since its own awful rollout.
The Oregon exchange board is scheduled to vote on the recommendation Friday, but as my colleague Amy Goldstein reported Thursday, federal officials have strongly encouraged the state’s move to HealthCare.gov. That would make Oregon the first state to abandon its enrollment system, presenting some immediate policy questions.
Wonder how much money was flushed down the toilet by the idiots running the Oregon exchange?
