Health Care-mudgeons

The title of Ross Douthat’s NYT column,”Obamacare, failing ahead of schedule,” was the icing on the crap cake of criticism. Look, I wanted a simpler single-payer plan myself, but these idiots have no idea how convoluted the process already is for those of us on the individual insurance market. I’ll take a few computer glitches over the excruciating, week-long process of putting my medical history on endless pages of forms, which could later be used to drop me coverage when I most need it. Nothing could be worse than that.
