New York State: Setting the Example and Getting It Done — As Usual

New York State Exceeds Obama-care Enrollments 

by 60 Percent and Premiums Halved

The story from here (NY Times).  It's a real success story. (Who's that over there? Oh, that's most of our elected state Republicans cringing in the corner licking their wounds).  

The highlights

In contrast with the early stumbles in most of the country, New York State, almost from the start, has provided a textbook lesson in how to make the Affordable Care Act work. But it has done so by making some tough decisions. 

New York State has signed up more than 900,000 people for commercial or government plans, lured 16 insurance companies onto its exchange, provided subsidies for most customers and reduced premiums across the board
