Obamacare, Pelosi, Garrett et al

Following the implosion of Obamacare has been at once great fun and very frustrating.

Great fun because it almost always is when liberal programs bump into reality. Ah yes, those brilliant technocrats. They know what is best and how to accomplish it.

It is always the same of course; Have meetings, give speeches, lie as needed to persuade your listeners that you are not doing what you are doing. And then the fun part, ducking the blowback. They are not doing quite as well at the last part as usual and it is great fun to watch them all squirm.

The frustrating part is the apparent cluelessness of many of the people interviewing the latest crop of miscreants.

There is the clip of Nancy Pelosi being grilled by Major Garrett about the "Big Lie". Her answers are incoherent, as usual. She prattles on about the goal of the ACA being to make sure everyone has the coverage they need.  Garrett fails to ask the obvious...Really? 60 year old couples need maternity and pediatric coverage? Goodness, how did we survive not having coverage we cannot ever, ever use?

Any structure built on a financial footing so deceitful that in order to charge customers what you really need to charge them to make your product work you have to include phantom benefits because you could not otherwise sell it is doomed.
