Sorry liberals, Obamacare’s problems go much deeper than the Web site
By Ezra Klein

There’s been a rash of commentary from some on the left who’ve decided that the real problem with Obamacare isn’t the crippling technological issues that have made it impossible for almost anyone to enroll in the federally run health-insurance exchanges but the media’s coverage of those problems.

It’s not the crime, it’s the lack of a cover-up.

A failure in the press coverage of the health-care exchange’s rocky launch has been in allowing people to believe that the problem is a glitchy Web site. This is a failure of language: “The Web site” has become a confusing stand-in phrase for any problem relating to the law’s underlying infrastructure. No one has a very good word to describe everything that infrastructure encompasses.

In brick-and-mortar terms, it’s the road that leads to the store, the store itself, the payment systems between the store and the government and the manufacturers, the computer system the manufacturers use to fill the orders, the trucks that carry the the product back to the store, the loading dock where the customers pick up the products, and so on.

It’s the problems in that infrastructure — indeed, much more than “just a Web site” — that pose such deep problems for the law.

    Wow, Syd, that’s amazing. If I had that kind of epicfail in my job, I would no longer have one.

    Ezra Klein, like the rest of the DNC propaganda arm called the “media” still do not want to mention the fact that the details of complying with Obamacare makes the worst Bernie Madoff concocted Ponzi Scheme look like a square deal.

    Methinks the scales are just beginning to fall from their eyes…

    I guess he was right.

    We didn’t build that.
