The Obama administration continues to struggle with the embarrassing rollout of its main domestic-policy scheme, Obamacare. The problems are not just limited to a dysfunctional website that took more time to build than it took to defeat Hitler after the attack on Pearl Harbor.
For example, a lot of focus has been on those Americans who had health insurance before the Affordable Care Act passed, who continue to have health insurance now, but whose policies will be canceled at the beginning of next year because of the law. These Americans are receiving especially large amounts of attention because President Obama lied over and over again when he promised before, during and even after the debate over his health care bill that if they liked their health care plan they could keep it. Period.
Now that it has become abundantly clear that the president was knowingly spouting untruths when he made this promise, the administration and its acolytes in media and academia are in full spin mode.
