Abstract

Chris Gilson looks at the best in political blogging from the Beltway and across the States. Affordable Care and Healthcare.gov difficulties The big story for much of the past week has been the on-going difficulties with the Obama administration’s website designed to help people sign up for healthcare insurance as part of the Affordable Care Act. On Saturday, Paul Krugman looks at why Obamacare is so complicated, saying that the system is essentially trying to simulate the results of a single-payer system, but must do so whilst keeping private companies in the mix. On Sunday, Doug Ross lists 25 of the best quotes explaining the Obamacare website’s ‘glitches’ from across the media and politicians. Crooks & Liars says that media are doing what they do best – making people panic with scare stories about Obamacare.
