One thing you have to remember about Obamacare is that much of the financial pain, such as steep penalties, is back ended so that by the time people wake up to reality, the law has been operating for years and it’s too late.

Here’s yet another example, the subsidies for state exchanges...

Many of today’s headlines are about the disaster known as healthcare.gov.

Correctly, people are wondering how the White House could turn the site live when it had not been properly designed and tested.  (More on that later from Mandy.)

The boondoggle is being portrayed as a major failure.  Which it is.

To say that the launch of the Obamacare exchanges was full of fail would be an understatement.

All we hear about is web traffic and clicks, but mostly silence about people actually enrolling.  Hey, remember the last time we measured success by clicks and eyeballs?

Henninger Obamacare collapse on own

Daniel Henninger of the WSJ believes that, if passed, Obamacare will do just that:

This thing called “ObamaCare” carries on its back all the justifications, hopes and dreams of the entitlement state. The chance is at hand to let its political underpinnings collapse, perhaps permanently.
