Obamacare is racking up expenses, in particular, with the creation of insurance exchanges. In this video, David Williamson looks at this feature of Obamacare, and a possible free market solution.

No wonder less than half of the states in the country have come on board. One solution is an online insurance exchange. A form of such an exchange already exists.

On the other hand, an online market may simply offer those plans with the best commissions and not the best deals. (NASDAQ: EHTH )
