Abstract

USApp Managing Editor, Chris Gilson, looks at the best in political blogging from the Beltway. Our round-up of state blogs will follow on Saturday afternoon. Affordable Care As Thanksgiving week began, the administration’s difficulties with the rollout of Affordable Care (Obamacare) still loomed large in blog commentaries. On Saturday, Wonkblog takes a close look at how all the U.S. states stack up in terms of Obamacare enrolment. They find some huge disparities; for instance, while California (which has a state exchange) has signed up over 80,000 people, Oregon’s figure is zero. The New Yorker takes an in-depth look at President Obama’s travails over the healthcare reform’s roll-out, saying that this time, his brand alone isn’t enough to preserve his legislative achievement of Affordable Care – he will have to fight state to state.
