Letters We Wish We'd Written Dept. - Obamacare Edition

From today's once great Washington Post  Bezos Bugle:
Regarding the Nov. 12 news article “ tally: 40,000 are signed up”:

Many opponents of the Affordable Care Act seemed almost gleeful that only about 40,000 Americans signed up through the law’s federal health insurance marketplace in the six weeks since enrollment began. But it feels like good news to some of us.

With all the problems has had, tens of thousands of people still signed up, and that doesn’t include people who have been able to get reasonable insurance policies on the cooperating state exchanges. If we add in those hundreds of thousands who are benefiting from the expansion of Medicaid, I would have to say that things are looking pretty darn good. We mustn’t forget that only 123 people signed up in the first month of Romneycare. Can we please give the president a break?

That's right.  123 people in the first month of Romneycare in Massachusetts.

To whom it may concern:  Please to get your panties out of a bunch.
