The nation's uninsured rate dropped modestly this month as the major coverage expansion under President Barack Obama's health care law got underway, according to a closely watched survey released Thursday.
The United States today is confronted with a crisis that endangers perhaps even more immediately the welfare of the American polity. And that is the lamentable state of health care in the United States.
If the insurance industry had blown the Obamacare rollout, there likely would have been little forgiveness, compassion or understanding coming their way from Washington or the states. Yet, forgiveness is exactly what the Obama administration wants from all of us.
At the risk of stating the obvious, there's a fox in the Obamacare hen house. It comes in the form of House Republican leaders, Senate Minority detractors and rich surrogates like the Koch Brothers and their Americans for Prosperity storefront.
