There is no 'Obamatroika' for ObamaCare

Silvio Canto, Jr.

Some of us are old enough to remember "perestroika."  It was Premier Gorbachev's desperate move to reform the USSR or save a system that was falling apart dramatically.

Perestroika did not work.  It did not make the centrally planned Soviet economy any better at putting food on the table or manufacture tractors.

Perestroika failed.  And so will the latest effort by President Obama to save ObamaCare.

First, there is a security problem, perhaps the mother of all glitches.   Who is going to give you your identity back once it gets compromised in the website?

Second, the bugs are still going strong, according to The Washington Post.  I guess that someone forgot to disinfect the site because the bugs are terrorizing data.

Last, but not least, there are two monsters around the corners: Premium shock and the death spiral because young people are not interested.

Gorbachev eventually stopped talking about perestroika and flew on a wing and a prayer until the USSR collapsed in late 1991.  I hope that the Obama administration does not wait too much longer to figure out that fixing ObamaCare is hopeless.

The problem of course is not Obamacare. The problem is how the White House was using it. If the White House were to package it carefully inside, say, a beautiful wood carving Trojan horse and then deliver one to North Korea, one to Iran, and one to Syria, why right after the mushroom clouds subside, some of our world issues would be resolved, We could then re-open Iran and Syria as balmy tourist areas and build a ski slope in North Korea. But the person who opened this box prematurely within the US, I cannot say enough bad things about. Worse than Pandora's Box I would say. But there is a similarity I admit. I believe that Pandora blamed George Bush and the Tea Party as well.
