Official Tasked with Setting up Obamacare Exchanges Coins Perfect Slogan for the Law


I don’t know about you, but I’m getting more confident every day:

With time-running out before the major provisions of President Obama’s health care law are set to be implemented, the official tasked with making sure the law’s key insurance exchanges are up and running is already lowering expectations.

“The time for debating about the size of text on the screen or the color or is it a world-class user experience, that’s what we used to talk about two years ago,” Henry Chao, an official at the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services who is overseeing the technology of the exchanges said at a recent conference. “Let’s just make sure it’s not a third-world experience.”

The perfect slogan: “Obamacare: Trying hard to not make it a third world experience.”

The backup slogan is of course “You think you hate it now, but wait’ll we implement it.”

I’m sure they’ll succeed in keeping health care from becoming “third world’ in the same way they’re succeeding in keeping it affordable.
