A basic King v. Burwell question for Michael Cannon

When oral arguments come up in the King v. Burwell case, there's one basic question I would love to see a justice ask of CATO hack Michael Cannon. It would go something like this:
If, as you argue, the Affordable Care Act wanted to force states to set up their own exchange in order to qualify for subsidies, then why the the law authorize a federal exchange in the first place?
Seriously. What's the point of creating a fallback that isn't actually a fallback? This whole thing has the convolutedness of a bad action movie script.
