Ezra Klein, a writer and blogger at the Washington Post is a liberal guy and a supporter of the ObamaCare health law, but he’s independent-minded enough to state the truth, even when it hurts. That is why this piece from Klein detailing the myriad and deep difficulties with the law is so important. Of course, as an opponent of the law, my belief is that the law’s flaws boil down to basic economics, but Klein’s analysis details the very real issues facing the Obama Administration’s failure to successfully implement the systems upon which ObamaCare depends.
Klein’s final line sums up the situation nicely, “Obamacare isn’t a political abstraction any longer. Its success doesn’t depend on spin or solidarity. What matters for the law — and for the people who are depending on it — is how well it actually works. So far, it’s not working well at all. If and when that changes, our coverage of the health-care law will change, too.”
