Skip to comments.Michael Gerson: Obamacare needs a doctor

Obamacare is a multiyear, multifaceted fiasco. It is a case study in how to alienate a country you intend to help. And it could become an intellectual crisis for modern liberalism.
The glitches are shockingly serious systemic failures, which were caused, in part, by a political calculation. Obamacares mandates and regulations drive up health insurance costs.
The greatest risk in the implementation of Obamacare was always adverse selection that the exchanges would not attract enough young and healthy people to make them economically viable. If there are too many sick people in an insurance system, premiums rise, further discouraging younger, healthier people from participating, resulting in higher premiums, etc. the insurance death spiral.

The Obamatollah strategy is blame technical glitches until the morning after the 2014 elections, at which point they cue the MSM to launch the Single Payer push.
Rubio is playing into this strategy bc he basically works for the Marxists (just like McCain).
Now that we finally have a few useful idiots waking up after 5 years and saying Wow they cant even build a website to charge us a zillion dollars to sign up for FREE healthcare?? ....Rubio leaps in to sideline the lead story and delay the public opinion collapse via his ‘delay’ bill whether it passes or not.
Nothing woke any drones until this idiotic website popped up, so i say let the site sit there on everybodys laptop screen and keep pissing them off.
Its working to wake some folks bc its #1 a direct personal experience on everybodys laptop #2 wholly owned by the Obamatollah Barrany #3 on a deeply personal matter (health) that was #4 lied about daily on TV by Obama/MSM for 4 years straight.
An incompetent boob was promoted to the top by adoring media and given control of $trillions of dollars...
what could go wrong?!
Obama needs to watch the movie “Idiocracy” and figure out which character is him
Gersen despises Ted Cruz because he’s an old Bush speechwriter who is bitter that Cruz took over the base
A while ago, I sent an email complaint to Townhall about Gersen but, alas, my wish was not granted.
Before that I complained about a pseudo- conservative woman whose name I can’t remember right now, probably because they dumped her. Kathleen something, I think
It is a cancerous growth.
It needs complete excising, radiation and chemo.
It is a foreign substance and completely alien to the entire system.
No "fixes" will do the job.
Uh...then that would be failed leadership!
