The last thing they want is for all this to be blowing up in their faces during the 2014 mid-term campaign. Let it be so.
It is going to. I wondered why the relatively safe Jeanne Shaheen in New Hapshire was sounding the alarm. Then I looked at that map of increasing insurance premiums, and realized exactly why. New Hampshire is in critical condition in terms of skyrocketing healthcare costs.
Think back to the 2010 wave. It reached Defcon 1 for Democrats as even the despicable Senator Boxer looked like she might be in real trouble. Unfortunately, she survived.
Shaheen is no Boxer, and New Hampshire is no California. If a 2010 re-hash occurs, Shaheen may well find herself out of a job.
And here I had always believed the supermen of the Democrat liberal party (or “Partei” to give it a proper Germanic spin) could shape, control and direct any “blow-up” in the direction they wanted, any time and under any circumstances.
But strangely, they have not yet been able to actively and definitively attribute the “failure to launch” of the Obamacare sign-up website to the Republicans. Actually, there are two problems that are engaged closely - they are trying to sell a product that is of little or no benefit to most of the “customers” who will be forced to either sign up, or go with no insurance coverage at all, and almost nobody can get online to even review the options. Those few that do get through, find the promises are pretty ephemeral when it gets down to actual application.
The longer the Current Regime now squatting in the White Hut (or “Spite Hut”) tries to fix things, the longer it will be before any operative plan gets up and running for the enrollment of new members in the various aspects of the Obamacare scheme, or scam, or sham, or just downright shame.
And it has been said, “You can’t fix stupid”. They will just keep trying and trying to make this monstrosity work, and the more time, treasure, toil and tears they spend upon it, the more convoluted it shall become.
Have they never heard of one of the labors of Hercules, the cleaning out of the Augean Stables? That would not ever gain the approval of the EPA today.
Everybody should make sure it does.
