O’Care will never be “manageable.”
After some consternation over “will she or won’t she,” HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has agreed to testify before the House Energy and Commerce Committee next Wednesday, regarding the botched Healthcare.gov rollout. Sebelius vowed, “I’m not throwing out the system and starting over.” Well, OK. Some House Republicans are calling on Sebelius to resign. However, to suggest she should be held responsible for the Healthcare.gov debacle implies that a better HHS Secretary might have made it work. Fact is, the failure of the rollout is but a metaphor for the reality that no government bureaucracy is ever going to manage 18% of the U.S. economy, much less a basic commerce website for insurance comparisons. As Mark Alexander has asserted, the “Silver Lining” of ObamaCare is that its cascading failures will be hung around Democrat necks for as long as the Democrats keep it intact.
