Bill Clinton to Obama: Let Americans keep their existing insurance and let them eat cake

Not that Barack Obama likely gives a whit what Bill Clinton (or anybody else, for that matter) has to say, but Clinton thinks the president should do whatever it takes — including tweaking Obamacare itself — to ensure that Americans can keep their existing insurance plans if they want to.

News of policy cancellations has put the White House on a panicked defensive not seen since the British torched the place in 1814.

The raging firestorm this time is over Obama’s if-you-like-your-health-plan-you-can-keep-it promise that proved more shocking than electrocution for many Americans even though they didn’t get a charge out of it.

Meanwhile, media reports claim that fewer than 50,000 people have successfully navigated the alligator-infested HealthCare.gov site and enrolled in private insurance plans as of last week.

The figure is a fraction of the Obama administration’s target of 500,000 enrollees for October.

The pathetic signup rate thus far has health insurers, who are counting on higher enrollment to make their plans profitable, more nervous than if they were confronting an epidemic of antibiotic-resistant superbugs.

  1. If a tree falls in the forest, does it make a noise?

    If a blog is read by essentially nobody, does it resonate?

    The answer, my friends, is blowing in the wind.
