It is indicative of a floundering administration. The ACA web site isn't close to being fixed. In fact the ACA isn't even the bill that was passed and then declared constitutional by the Supreme Court. I question whether all the turmoil is worth it because I wonder if what passes for that bill is itself constitutional but then there are all those "the Secretary shall" rights.
You'd think the unintended consequences would be a teaching moment but it apparently hasn't been. Too much power has been given to said Secretary to dictate what she and she alone thinks our insurance coverage should be. That she was once insurance commissioner of Kansas is distressing but then such commissioners rarely have experience in the field nor know all the ins and outs of the products they are charged with overseeing.
In other words a rank amateur has designed a government program which affects every single one of us and our Congress passed it without even reading it. Now it's collapsing as well it should.
To divert our attention the President has retreated to another favorite boondoggle. Comprehensive immigration reform. Don't go there. Please. The last thing we need is another government monstrosity that's doomed to fail before it even gets off the ground.
Those who call for incremental steps should listened to. It's much easier to fix a small dust up than one the size of Obamacare.
The Republicans have nearly destroyed their own party by coming to that realization. The move from defunding Obamacare to delaying it is a huge difference and they're still not there. By their own hand I might add. Had they asked for delay first, forgotten about the shutdown and defunding they still might not be there but it's looking more and more like it will get there in spite of all that has come before. With some some critical thinking and leadership all the damage could have been avoided.
Now on to immigration. Leave it alone until this mess is cleaned up or we'll be going through the same agonies again. Then take it piece by piece. Those here illegally rate no special consideration unless it's to actually enforce the laws already on the books and treat them for what they are. Illegal. Congress can only hold so many hearings. Consider the IRS mess and Benghazi among others have yet to be resolved. The government has trouble functioning in the best of times, it doesn't function at all with an overload it now bears.
Then get smart. Democrats - get rid of Reid and Pelosi as your leadership in favor of those who would work for the country. Republicans - find a voice. You all do a lot of talking but apparently at, not to, each other, and not at all to us.
And to the voters. Forget about the cults of personality. We've been there and done that too often and it hasn't worked out too well. It's time to get back to basics - if we even remember what they are. Please tell me it's not a generational phenomenon.
