I get such a kick out of Townhall. It spends all its time ragging on Obamacare...but has anyone ever see Townhall put out an alternative???? Oh, yes, of course "the private sector" and 'free markets." Uh, excuse me, but what do you think the past 4 decades have been? That is exactly what we had and what did it get us?

You want to see a freakin' echo chamber go to a lib site like huffpo.
The American Action Forum has put together a comprehensive map of where each state stands on some of Obamacare's key provisions: creating federally-regulated health insurance exchanges and dramatically expanding Medicaid rolls on the federal government's request. The map updates often, but here's where each state stands now:

The state that may surprise conservatives is New Mexico, where Republican Gov. Susana Martinez has acquiesced on both a health insurance exchange and on expanding Medicaid rolls. Martinez, who was considered a leading candidate for Mitt Romney's VP slot last year, became only the...
