Don't be surprised if the Obama White House does a 'Friday night document dump' on ObamaCare
The unthinkable about ObamaCare may very well happen a lot sooner than you think it will happen.
I would not be surprised if a White House staffer "tweets" that ObamaCare has been put on hold until further notice.
The Friday Night Dump!
Why? Because ObamaCare faces two insormountable challenges, or two hurdles that will require a lot more than "happy statements" by Press Secretary Carney about letting technical people work overtime to fix things.
First, the technical problems, or the famous "glitches," are starting to look more and more like that old car that needs a new engine. In other words, it's not the radiator that needs to replaced. It's the whole engine! I recall from personal experience that new engines are a lot more expensive than radiators! I got rid of an old car when I heard that it needed an engine rather than a radiator!
Second, "sticker shock" is now a big issue, a credibility problem. You can't promote that people will have "affordable insurance" when the options are unaffordable.
This is what President Obama told an audience a few days before implementation:
It it not happening like President Obama said that it would.
Yuval Levin nailed it at NRO:
The bottom line is that you can't sign up and the prices are higher than promised.
In the business world, we call that a disaster. Companies go out of business. Executives are fired. MBA courses are created to explain the debacle.
Can you say Edsel, as David Catron wrote. ("Bad ideas, worse rollouts, and unhappy customers")
ObamaCare is a disaster. I just hope that Valerie Jarrett "opens the gate" and tells the president!
