Obamacare: Death by Starvation

The outright repeal of Obamacare is effectively out of the picture for the next two years while the Democrats hold the Presidency and the Senate. However, Republicans are in the position to starve it into oblivion by Constitutional means:
Article 1 Section 7:

All bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills.

The key to implementation is the establishment of these exchanges in each state. Do not fund them. Stall until the next election cycle and hope for a Republican President and Senate when repeal is more likely to pass.

Of course Republicans could just use a Pelosi tactic and just deem it so.
