Shikha Dalmia notes that Detroit's retirees no doubt hope that President Obama's self-proclaimed rage at the moribund new health exchange has the fix-it properties he claims. That's because the city emergency manager's plan to return Motown to solvency involves dumping these retirees onto the Obamacare exchange where federal taxpayers can subsidize their coverage. If the exchange doesn't work, these workers might have no option but to join the ranks of the uninsured.
