Harvard professor and former Democrat adviser David Cutler explains why Barack Obama’s new healthcare program is such a brilliant, screaming, unfixable superdisaster:
They were running the biggest start-up in the world, and they didn’t have anyone who had run a start-up, or even run a business.
Yep. That might just be the problem, right there. And they were led by a lying President. No, wait; the New York Times editorial board offers a more nuanced form of words:
Congressional Republicans have stoked consumer fears and confusion with charges that the health care reform law is causing insurers to cancel existing policies and will force many people to pay substantially higher premiums next year for coverage they don’t want. That, they say, violates President Obama’s pledge that if you like the insurance you have, you can keep it.Mr. Obama clearly misspoke when he said that. [Source] [BH]
