How could the government be so incompetent as to launch an untested website that is so hard to use?
And how could government be so unfair that it would impose penalties on people who were unable to sign on because of the botched website?
And what those millions of cancelled policies?
And what of those unaffordable premiums and soaring deductibles for the unsubsidized and those promises you could keep your doctor and your health plan?
How can you force people to buy policies containing benefits they do not want, do not need, and will never use in order to subsidize other people. The Obama administration has not sold people that they must participate in the exchanges for collective action for the common good.
“It is pretty clear that the implementation of ObamaCare will set the tone of how Americans think about government for years to come. There are two large questions to be settled, which you might call competence and coercion?"
The Obama administration has responded by backing and filling holes in the law, by loosening, delaying, and suspending objectionable provisions. And now it has granted “hardship exemptions” to those who cannot even afford bronze health plans, the cheapest of them all. Thanks to the Internet, people are used to personal and decentralized choices.
