Everybody Continue to Breathe Normally, Please


From BooMan:
...The extremely temporary problems with the Healthcare.gov website are of no lasting import whatsoever. The only potential problem here is that it doesn't get fixed quickly enough to avoid a deficit of healthy consumers and the rates are annoyingly high as a result. But even that would be fixed and forgotten within a couple of years.

Before long, the website will function exactly as it was intended to and people will get good, solid and affordable access to health care. And the only kind of stories worth writing about the political impact of ObamaCare are ones that look at what it will mean for millions of people to get their healthcare with the assistance of government subsidies, and what it will mean for a political party to oppose those subsidies or seek to diminish them.
And John Cole:
I just watched the SNL opening skit mocking Sebelius and ACA, and the only thing I could think was thank fucking ALLAH that Social Security and Medicaid were rolled out in the pre-internet days.
Think about it, you fucking jackasses at the Wonkblog and you other alleged liberals. All the programs you claim to love, like SS, Medicare, Medicaid, etc. At this point in the rollout for these programs 50, 60, and 70 years ago, the mail would just be reaching the respective offices. Problems people are experiencing today would not even be noticed for four months in those days, yet people still participated, just as people are right now.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming, which includes execrable hackery from the likes of CNN.
