This week, people continued to ask: is this the health insurance change we've been waiting for? Having had nearly four years to prepare, the Obama administration continued to deal with the embarrassing, high-glitch, low-enrollment rollout of Obamacare. On Thursday, the president announced a feeble fix, allowing people to keep existing plans for a year, and admitted, about his "you can keep it" promise: "that's on me... we fumbled the rollout." Trying to pounce on the fumble was the GOP-led House, which on Friday passed its own "fix" -- one that would essentially kneecap the law. Of course, it is the shockingly inept rollout that makes the Affordable Care Act vulnerable to such bogus "reforms." The mystery is why Obamacare wasn't entrusted to the same tech wizards responsible for the state-of-the-art Obamacampaign. Odds are you won't hear the president rallying the nation around "the fierce urgency of a fully functioning website by the end of the month," but that's the make-or-break moment the White House is now facing. Hope, indeed.
