I was reading somewhere that Obama crew are secretly panicked over this. When the bill was written it was assumed that the vast majority of states would “come on board” before now and therefore only a little funding was allocated in case there were a couple stragglers. Creating exchanges for 30 states is going to take huge amount of money and manpower and needless to say even Obama realizes it's pointless to even try to get the Republican congress to approve extra money. Rumor has it that they are trying to “invent” a funding mechanism by adding a surcharge to the plans. But since the law doesn't specifically allow it, it would be on very dubious legal ground and probably smacked down by the courts.
