Kyle Wingfield: Obamacare delay: Another bad sign for the rule of law
“On this blog, I routinely point out the many flaws of Obamacare that are rapidly becoming apparent. I do this in part to highlight the specific problems that particular individuals and businesses are facing thanks to a bill that was sold largely in the terms of large, monolithic groups of people and large (and rigged and gimmicky) dollar figures. Tens of millions of people, billions of dollars, that sort of thing. So far, the law isn’t living up to the hype on either large-number count — programs are under-enrolled and yet somehow over-budget — but the smaller, personal problems are still noteworthy.”
