Bad news is piling up for Governor Abercrombie’s Hawaii Health Connector.

A recent study found Hawaii’s ObamaCare exchange is the most expensive per capita in the country, costing 26 times the national average.


Hawaii’s exchange has already received $204 million in taxpayer dollars and is expected to need an additional $15 million a year.

Plus, Hawaii’s two largest health insurers are reporting millions in losses due to ObamaCare fees, which one insurer said could raise premiums an average of 13 percent.

Millions more in taxpayer money, low enrollment rates, higher premiums; It is clear ObamaCare is not working for Hawaii.”

  1. I'm not a big fan of the Hawaii Connector as it stands, but wow, what a misinformed rant! Here's another clueless Mainland hack trying to score political points in our State. But to do that, they might want to at least get their facts straight about Hawaii's Connector being an independent non-profit — not a state agency under the Executive Branch. How embarrassing … for the RGA to have such a sloppy Communications Director.
