States lagging on healthcare sign-ups vow to do better

USA Today, March 14, 2014
States that embraced the Affordable Care Act and created health care exchanges were supposed to lead the way in enrolling their residents in health insurance, but some of them are responsible for the federal government falling behind in its projections.
