Here we go again

Otter expects federal exchange
   BOISE (AP) — Idaho is likely to get a federally operated insurance exchange, not the statebased plan favored by Gov. Butch Otter as recently as last year, because it’s unlikely his administration will complete design work before a January 2013 deadline.
   Otter made the comments to reporters Wednesday at an Idaho Press Club breakfast.
   In November, his administration asked the federal government for an extra year to draft a state plan, but Department of Insurance Director Bill Deal has yet to hear back.
   Otter says he’s watching 
a couple things: First, how the U.S. Supreme Court rules in a lawsuit filed by Idaho and others challenging the 2010 federal health care overhaul’s constitutionality.
   And second, whether a Republican is elected president in November, since GOP candidates have promised to dismantle the overhaul.

One year to get this done!  Even your beloved Republican Governor wants to get this done and the Republican legislature drug its feet.  Now you'll get a Fed running the program.  Stupid, stupid, stupid. No Republican is gonna beat Obama in November and the Supreme Court will rule in favor of this bill.
