President Defends Obamacare: It's Doing What It's Designed to Do

Glitches unavoidable Obama says


Acknowledging there will be "glitches" in the ongoing rollout of the Affordable Care Act, President Obama on Thursday brought Obamacare supporters to the White House to stress that the law is already saving consumers money.

  1. “It’s doing what it’s designed to do”

    Securing the re-election of Democrats to congress? No, I’m pretty sure it is failing even at this.

    Allowing us to claim that Government has its Top Men solving your problems, while managing to not actually solve your problems, thus allowing us to win future elections by promising even more government intervention? Ding, ding, ding, we have the winner!

    That’s a relief.

    I thought it was an unplanned clusterfuck.

    It’s good to have TOP MEN in charge.
