    Presser on Obamacare "Train Wreck"

    Since the White House has committed itself to a deadline, the deadline must be seen to be met, without fail (“We will implement it”). It only remains to spin whatever system is actually delivered as a success, a process that career “progressives,” and perhaps even our famously free press will be cheerfully complicit in.

    Obama, in his presser, began that public relations process, by setting an extraordinarily low baseline for project success, marginalizing those without insurance, pre-positioning alibis, and presenting poor system architecture driven by the requirement to keep private health insurance companies in place as a natural and normal case of TINA (There Is No Alternative).

    Obama’s presser is a morally reprehensible though typical effort to encourage a majority of Americans to throw a minority under the bus—even though they, too, may one day be members of that minority if they are “unlucky”!

    NOTE Query: ObamaCare subsidies are tax credits. Does anybody know whether student loan defaulters will have their ObamaCare tax credits confiscated? Readers?

    NOTE Adding. ObamaCare is extremely complex — indeed, obfuscated. I welcome corrections and emendations in comments. I mean, at some point, a goodly number of us are actually going to have to figure this thing out.
