Hell Bent for Healthcare

I realize I’m mixing cosmologies here, and that it should really read “Hades bent for healthcare,” but that didn’t quite have the same ring. Seriously, though, I can’t understand the logic of scrapping an entire program that will probably save countless lives just because the rollout was bad. Am I upset about the website not working? Yes. But mainly because it is a tremendous political blunder that reinforces opponents’ “train wreck” narrative, which was going to happen whether the website worked or not.
