ObamaCare’s Like an iPhone

Sebelius pleads for same slack Apple receives.

Village Idiots

ObamaCare exchanges are off to an unsurprisingly rocky start. But no worries: Everything will be OK – if folks would just cut Health and Human Services some slack. HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says that consumers should be patient, just like they were with some of the issues that plagued Apple’s new iOS7.

“Apple, you know, has a few more resources than we have to roll out technology, and a few more people who’ve been working on the system for a while, and no-one is calling on Apple to not sell devices for a year or to, you know, get out of the business because the whole thing is a failure. … Hopefully they’ll give us the same slack they give Apple. If there’s not quite the operational excellence right away, we’ll continue to press for that.”

Memo to Sebelius: As Reason’s Nick Gillespie points out, “Last time I checked, buying Apple products is voluntary, so this analogy is a no-go from the get-go.”
