What is wrong with Ohio? re: ACA

California is the White House’s proof that Obamacare is working
By Sandhya Somashekhar and Sarah Kliff, Published: June 6, 2013 at 12:38 pm

President Obama will try to allay anxiety over his signature health-care law Friday during a visit to California, a state that the White House is highlighting as proof that the law is working.

With the focus in recent months on the law’s shaky rollout and continuing political battles, the president wants to draw attention to a state that has embraced the law and yielded some good news: Officials in the Democrat-led state recently released figures that show insurers expect to charge lower-than-expected premiums for individual policies sold under the law.

On the eve of his comments, however, a different story emerged from Ohio. Officials in the Republican-led administration Thursday released the rates proposed by insurers there, estimating that they represented an 88 percent price increase.

“We have warned of these increases,” Ohio Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor (R) said in a statement. “The Department’s initial analysis of the proposed rates show consumers will have fewer choices and pay much higher premiums for their health insurance starting in 2014.”

Why does ACA work in California but not Ohio?
