Three states could have an outsize role in the success — or failure — of ObamaCare: California, Florida and Texas are home to more than one-third of the nation’s 46 million uninsured people.
A large majority of California voters know very little or nothing at all about the state’s new health insurance marketplace less than six weeks before enrollment starts.
And unlike Florida and Texas, California is actually trying.

Texas, Florida and California determine the success or failure for many federal programs due to the large size of these states.
I don’t agree because they’re all very different states in composition and structure and even demographics.
It’s rather interesting how the very people in California that ObamaCare proponents want to help are the least likely to even know — or appreciate — the finer points of ObamaCare.
“A large majority of California voters know very little or nothing at all about the state’s new health insurance marketplace less than six weeks before enrollment starts”
There needs to be more education about what Obamacare does and how it effects individuals, otherwise it could really harm some people.
Looks like Pelosi was wrong. We passed it and still have no idea what it does…
“California, Florida and Texas are home to more than one-third of the nation’s 46 million uninsured people. If the White House and its allies can’t convince large chunks of the uninsured in those three states to enroll in the Affordable Care Act’s new insurance exchanges, the administration could have a very hard time reaching its enrollment goals.”
I guess that is a big woops on the part of democrat congressmen who passed ObamaCare.
Did they really thing that they were going to convince Texas (a notoriously Red state) to jump on to universal healthcare? If they did, that shows a depressing lack of understanding of the political spectrum of the states, and if they didn’t well…it’s still shows a pretty depressingly small understanding of the real world.
California is trying to get the healthcare system up and running, but you are right…without Texas this thing falls flat on it’s face.
That is quite strange in my opinion. Not sure where it’ll all head.
It’s interesting that the new measure of success for ObamaCare appears to be how many people enroll in the exchanges.
