Oh, Bill Clinton.
Just as the Obama White House was scrambling to keep Democrats from jumping ship on the double disaster of ObamaCare – people thrown off their insurance because of an ideological decision who are now unable to buy new policies because of technical incompetence – the former president thought he ought to offer his two cents.
“I personally believe even if it takes a change in the law, the president should honor the commitment the federal government made to those people and let them keep what they got,” the Big Dog told Ozy, the new liberal news site launched by some of the Clintons’ friends and allies.
But the current Democrat in the White House didn’t honor that commitment on purpose. This is the plan. It’s only because his administration is bad at the Internet that the millions of disrupted policies are even being treated as a problem by the administration.
President Obama, when he was reluctantly lapping up the saucer of apology sauce being served up by MSNBC’s Chuck Todd last week, said “that’s something that we’re going to do everything we can to get fixed.” The “something” the president described wasn’t that people lost their policies despite him saying otherwise. The problem is that they might not be able to afford new, more expensive policies or even penetrate the terrible Web site his team built to buy the product.
