Obamacare -- the View from California

How the heck is Obamacare going to help provide healthcare to CA'ians?  It won't.
The Los Angeles Times wrote in May, "People who want UCLA Medical Center and its doctors in their health plan network next year, for instance, may have only one choice in California's exchange: Anthem Blue Cross. " But less than a month later Anthem Blue Cross pulled out of the California SHOP. Let's see, one minus one equals zero, right?

In the same article, Blue Shield admitted that its slimmed-down CoveredCA members would see only 37% of the doctors who make up Shield's regular, long-established network.
