Opinion: ACA's bungled rollout aside, government health insurance works
The lead story in the Oct. 13 New York Times details the ongoing problems of the Affordable Care Act's websites intended to facilitate access by individuals to the law's hallmark online health insurance marketplaces. Those problems continue. To summarize, many of the state-run and all of the 36 federally run websites are currently experiencing significant problems providing access to the exchanges, and nobody seems willing or able to predict when they will be fixed. This failure to launch President Barack Obama's signature domestic achievement is hugely embarrassing for the administration, and will undoubtedly provide a great deal of fodder for late-night comedians.
