Obamacare: Get on with it

Posted By on Wed, Nov 7, 2012 at 8:49 AM

The question of the day from the Washington Post:

The Affordable Care Act’s fate has been in limbo since the day it became law. The Supreme Court could have wiped it off the books. A President Romney could’ve repealed it.

But that’s all over now. President Obama’s reelection means that his signature legislative accomplishment, the Affordable Care Act, will fully come into effect.

That’s what we know for sure. We know a lot less, however, about how that happens. The federal government has never tried to expand private insurance coverage to 30 million Americans, and it will now need cooperation from some very uncooperative states.

They mean us, for one.

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
