Obamacare backer: Implementation will be “long,” “slow” and riddled with “horror stories”

Let me emphasize, this guy is a self-described supporter of the new law, who things the ACA is on the “right track:”
“There’s a great deal of uncertainty almost everywhere you look,” said Mark Moody, the president and chief executive officer of WEA Trust, which offers insurance to Wisconsin school districts, state health plan members, and local units of government. “There will be horror stories, stories of so-called train wrecks,” Moody said at the panel discussion organized by Wisconsin Health News. “It will be a difficult process to get the exchanges started. … I think fundamentally the Affordable Care Act is on the right track but it’s going to be a long, slow process.”
To recap: The law’s principal co-author has labeled the roll-out of his handiwork a “huge train wreck” and has declined to seek re-election. A top national administration of Obamacare says he’s just aiming to avoid a “third world experience” at this stage. And now state-level healthcare officials who believe in the law are preemptively tossing around phrases like “horror stories.” The long-anticipated Obamacare fiasco is already playing out across the country, fresh examples of which I outline in my latest Townhall piece.
