Obstructionist software!

Less than two weeks before the launch of insurance marketplaces created by the federal health overhaul, the government’s software can’t reliably determine how much people need to pay for coverage, according to insurance executives and people familiar with the program.

Honestly, I really can’t believe that there are so many elected Republican officials who still aren’t ready to go to the mat over this law. There has been no part of its implementation that hasn’t been problematic and there is no reason to believe that it will get any better once these initial troubles are figured out. Actually, there is no reason to believe they even will get figured out. And if they do, the sticker shock alone will be something to capitalize on.

When the monster that wants to destroy you is stunned and wounded, you don’t sit around and wait for it to get better.
