No-new-news Exchange News

The Gray Lady wins this week's "D'Uh!" Award for its less than timely grasp of the obvious:

"States are lagging in the creation of health insurance exchanges ... waiting for a Supreme Court decision or even the November election results, to see whether central elements of the new law might be overturned or repealed."

Ya think?

But the Times doesn't stop there. In the kind of incisive, hard-hitting investigative journalism for which its renowned, The Paper of Record posits that this delaying tactic may backfire:

"By Jan. 1, 2013, the Obama administration will decide whether each state is ready to run its own exchange or whether the federal government should do the job instead."

As if Ms Shecantbeserious has such a great track record for punctuality.

Of course, with 58 states to lord over supervise, I'm sure she'll get right on it.
