Now They Tell Us

ABC News reports that Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-MT) complained to HHS Secretary Katherine Sebelius that "I just see a huge train wreck coming down" because of the bumbling implementation of Obamacare in a hearing that ABC characterized as a "routine budget hearing that suddenly turned tense".

Turns out we really did need to pass the bill to find out what's in it!

Guess the joke's on us!!

Maybe there will come a day when people recognize that there is a world of difference between High Concept and good intentions that make you feel noble - healthcare for all! cheaper healthcare!! better healthcare!!! - and the capability of normal human beings to design a detailed, complex, interlinked 2,000 page piece of legislation governing 1/6 of the American economy that requires 1,000 regulations and gaggles of regulators to get everything working together perfectly in timing, design, content and flexibility in order to achieve the desired outcome.
