Anybody who paid attention to the process of putting together the paradoxically-named “Affordable Care Act” knows that neither “affordable” nor “care” was the point of the bill. That’s why the brunt of the law, by careful design, doesn’t kick in until after the 2012 elections. The problem for Obama (one of many) is that as the private sector tries to prepare for the implementation of this massive pile of expensive red tape and intrusive bureaucracy, it’s being discovered just how ill-conceived it really is:

A major provision of the healthcare reform law designed to prevent businesses from dropping coverage for their workers could inadvertently leave families without access to subsidized health insurance.

The problem is a huge headache for the Obama administration and congressional Democrats, because it could leave families unable to buy affordable health insurance when the healthcare law requires that everyone be insured starting in 2014.

Some of the administration’s closest allies on healthcare reform warn this could dramatically undercut support for the law, which already is unpopular with many voters and contributed to Democrats losing the House in the 2010 midterm elections.

This bunch would be laughable if they were relegated to a clown car under the big top where they all belong, but in charge of a national economy the ineptitude isn’t quite as funny. What’s worse, they’re not even very good thieves — they make the Apple Dumpling Gang look like Bonnie & Clyde.

Even if Obama loses in 2012, it’ll take decades to dig out of the deeper hole the Democrats have put America in — all thanks to a bunch of wide-eyed suckers who believed in that unicorn ranch in fantasy-land where it rains gumdrops and we all slumber on beds of somebody else’s money.

Say it for us one more time, Nancy:

The fog is lifting, and it’s not looking good.

    And a $1.3 billion loss to the American people on the Chrysler bail out so Dick Obama could buy/keep/pay off the unions. Dept. of Treasury actually said is was good deal even though we lost $1.3 billion.

    Barry, the Magic Mooooslim is tanking and taking the USA down with him. Is it a surprise people? Exhiibit A: Barry's papi was not only a moooslim but a true, committed communist as well. Barry's step-papi was a moooslim. Barry's boyhood mentor was a Black Panther and a committed communist.

    Hmm….me thinks he just may have a bias toward Marxism/socialism/communism and that he's soft on Islaaaam. Just a hunch mind you!

    It's getting so bad for Ubama that a potted plant might beat him in 2012.

    Ha! So true… with this bunch it's tough to tell what's a design flaw, and what was the design.

    Elmendorf's final, official CBO estimate for Obamacare might eventually be off by more than 100% within only a few years.

    We can only stop the insanity by forcing these clown shows like CBO to face jail time if their "estimates" are off by a certain percentage. They will argue that they "score what they're given", but if that is the case then the jail time needs to go up the ladder. Whoever gives the estimate that is egregiously wrong goes to prison. Whoever provides the "input" for the model that produces the bad result goes to prison.

    Weeeeeeel … "representatives" represent the majority of the voters in their districts and more often than not reflect the general mentality and ideology of their constituents. The line is drawn. There can be no compromise between truth and falsehood. And the time is drawing nigh for something more than a political revolution. The United States I doubt will remain united much longer.

    There are no doubt that Obama have handled the financial crisis okay. After all Bush ran this country like a headless chicken. Give Obama another period and things will look much brighter.
