Every State Is Having Problems With Obamacare and Here's the Map to Prove It

There are glimmers of hope for the advocates of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), but in general things are not looking too bright. It's difficult to say that Obamacare is running smoothly.

Last week, Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) claimed that all Obamacare horror stories are not true, a statement that on the surface is false. Obamacare affects us all in one way or another, and proponents of the law need to do a better job of resolving issues like the ones on this map. Opponents of the law need to offer an actionable solution to the disastrously implemented law. The problems aren't made up (even if Harry Reid and Stephen Colbert claim they are).
