Why fixing Healthcare.gov won't fix the fight over Obamacare

The Washington Post, December 3, 2013

Democrats and Republicans disagree about a lot when it comes to President Obama's signature health-care law. But on one point, there is consensus: Obamacare is about much more than HealthCare.gov.

Both sides have begun to look beyond the technical glitches that plagued the rollout of HealthCare.gov, the site designed for Americans to shop for coverage in the newly installed federal exchange.
