    Cost seems way out of whack. $24 million to service about 60,000 people? Why can't they just hook on to the Federal system? Would they lose all their cushy jobs then?

    So it costs roughly $500 per person, per year, just to administer this state health exchange. That cost will, of course, be passed on to OTHER people, just like almost every other bloated, mismanaged government program. Yay!!!
