Obama’s Law:  Anything that will go right will go right.

In other words,  the exchanges will go swimmingly after the glitches have been ironed out, when  millions sign up, and the vast majority of Americans find out how affordable, accountable, and wonderful the law actually is.  Ultimately those on the right flank of society will be proven wrong.
Obama’s Law is the corollary of Murphy’s Law, Anything that can go wrong will go wrong. 
What caused me to create Obama’s Law were two things.  
One, President ObamaCare’s comment  that GOP-opposition to his cherished namesake law giving control of  1/5 of the nation’s economy  is “ideologically driven.”  To me that remark is a classic example of the pot calling the kettle black. 
Two, David Wessel’s column in the October 4 Wall Street Journal,  “ObamaCare – A Game Changer in the Making?” Wessel asks, ”What if the  new health care marketplaces called exchanges work?  They just might change the way most Americans get health insurance.”  Now that would be a different kettle of ideological fish.
