Best of the Web Today: A Reprieve, but for Whom? - WSJ.com: ""The Obama administration is set to announce another major delay in implementing the Affordable Care Act," the Hill reports. Ho hum, Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead. But look at the next phrase: "easing election pressure on Democrats."
Assuming the report is accurate--the administration's response yesterday to the Hill's queries was that "they had no updates to announce"--this looks like an especially cynical move. The idea, as described by the Hill, is to minimize the number of consumers victimized before Election Day by President Obama's you-can-keep-your-plan fraud. Although perhaps it would be more precisely accurate to say the idea is to minimize the number of consumers who know before Election Day that they're victims of the fraud."
