    Was that also designed by Michelle’s college buddy?

    Obama told us that the whole thing would be self-supporting and won’t cost the taxpayers a dime. So I wonder who’s paying the cost overruns to fix this boondoggle.

    According the report I heard on six people signed up for Obamacare the first day and 220 the second day, a far cry from the 40,000 they need everyday to make it work. some much for the lie that every America will want OC.

    It’s a government procurement thing. Look at cost over-runs and design-flaw discoveries that involve the military. Does that jet cost millions more because GE or McDonnel-Douglas can’t do their jobs, or because the government changes specifications and requirements after construction has started? Answer: both, most of the time. Who could have guessed?

    Military cost over-runs? Ho-hum, nothing to see here. But a software failure? Bring the torches and pitchforks.

    " Other things can be disastrous too, but that doesn’t make this off limit to criticism."

    Absolutely true. My point was only that government disasters are quite common, and almost all are quite costly. Yet many of them are so common, and have been going on so long, we have lost our outrage long ago. Aiming your gunsights on nothing but today’s outrage helps to legitimize yesterday’s, and I submit that’s a shame.

    If that is true, either you have seriously misunderstood me, or I have failed to get my point across. Either way, I apologize.

    Asking the insurance industry to make the health care system better while forcefeeding them business is the same as asking the wolf to hold the keys to the henhouse.

    Despite the fact that government disasters are common, government has done some impressive things. The problems resulting from government are often related to lack of accountability, and much of that is a result of the “nudge-nudge-wink-wink” coziness of lobbyists with our “representatives” on both sides of the aisle.
