THE WHEELS COME OFF OBAMACARE

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the gradual disintegration of Obamacare and the growing frustration of its advocates with Obama and the bureaucrats who are supposed to be implementing the monstrosity:

I recently came across a post in Time’s Swampland blog titled, “Obamacare Incompetence” … It seems that Joe Klein, a usually reliable Democrat hack, is deeply unhappy with the slow and clumsy implementation of the ‘Affordable Care Act.’

What’s his beef?

Klein’s post focuses primarily on the implosion of Obamacare’s exchanges, pointing out that the President’s apparatchiks squandered three full years during which they should have been hard at work preparing for the advent of these insurance ‘marketplaces.’

And yet the all-important exchanges will not be ready on time, and they are by no means the only component of Obamacare that won’t ready for prime time according to the original implementation schedule.

    Franklin Roosevelt was famously uninvolved in the day to day implementation of the WPA and Social Security. Of course he had Harry Hopkins and Frances Perkins. He later had Gen George Marshall and others less famous but super competent during Lend Lease that merely slowed down Hitler and saved the world.

    Kathleen Sibelius is no Harry Hopkins.

    The Democrats under FDR had a majority in Congress of about 80% after the Depression
    decimated the Republican party. Even despite this, some of FDR’s programs were failures such as the NRA.

    This is not to excuse Obamacare’s fumblings.
    The CLASS program and the puny high risk pool had deep flaws.
