Oh, those nasty uncooperative red states…like Minnesota, where MyFox9 reports that at least 140,000 just lost their health insurance.

Reporter Tom Lyden: “A couple weeks ago, Larry got this letter from HealthPartners, telling him his insurance is being discontinued because it doesn’t meet the new minimum standards under the Affordable Care Act. Larry did some rough calculations. He and his wife were paying $658 a month. Under a new plan, HealthPartners will charge them more than $1,000, a yearly difference of more than $4000. It doesn’t exactly live up to the president’s promise.”
OBAMA: “If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period.”
Obamacare Victim Larry Walburn: “That’s a lie, that’s a straight out lie. The only way you can keep it is if you have to pay a whole bunch more in premiums.”
LYDEN: “Do you feel misled?”
WALBURN: “Well totally.”

And Washington State, where KOMO-TV says 200,000 just lost their health insurance.

Reporter Luke Deucy: “Last month, Doug Hall’s health care provider told him they are terminating his current plan.”
Victim Doug Hall: “Well I basically looked at the letter and I threw it in the corner. I didn’t even want to read it.”
DUECY: “And he tells me the new plan Regence is now offering him has less coverage, while his monthly premiums will cost 20 percent more, his deductible 50 percent more.”
HALL: “It’s very frustrating that we’re being forced to do this.”

So many people supported Obamacare until they found out they would have to pay for it.

Bryan - You should start running a daily tally on how many have had their health insurance canceled because of the Awful Chaos Act. You might shame the Administration into releasing the number who have signed up, or you might prompt them to put it off indefinitely because of how would embarassing it would be.

I started busting up after "shame the administration..."
Doesn't matter what comes after.
If you pointed out to Jay Carney that his fly was open, he'd either tell you that this was part of the plan, and today's men's fashions now call for more exposure of the genital region, or he's look you straight in the eye and deny it. One of the two.

Look, folks---nobody should be surprised at this. The only thing people should be surprised at is that people are surprised.

This was a "Producers" strategy. The idea was to produce a website rollout that was a guaranteed flop, just as in the film "The Producers." That way, the Democrats could run against Obamacare next year either from the right ("We need to fix the website!") or from the Left ("We need single-payer!") as their district permitted, thus denying the Republicans the election-year issue of Obamacare. The "glitches" would prevent Obamacare from truly kicking in, so people wouldn't find out what a lousy deal it was until the Democrats re-took the House and held the Senate---meanwhile, the promises of a glorious future would keep rollin' on.

The only problem was that, as in "The Producers," too many negatives created, not a runaway surprise hit as in the film, but a genuine disaster instead of a manageable, controlled, manufactured disaster.

Not even that. Ever watch "Jaywalking" on the Tonight Show?
