Failure Was The Only Option

Oregon, once touted as a model for President Obama's health care law, signed up just 44 people for insurance through November, despite spending more than $300 million on its state-based exchange.
The state’s exchange had the fewest sign-ups in the nation, according to a new report today by the Department of Health and Human Services.
... Oregon is a Democratic state that embraced Obamacare early and enthusiastically. Its outreach effort, which included a folk-style music video featuring a singer playing an acoustic guitar against a colorful and scenic backdrop, had been praised among the law's supporters.
We had to pass the law to know what was in the law.

And turns out that what is in the law is pure, unadulterated failure.
"You know, in certain older civilized cultures, when men failed as entirely as you have, they would throw themselves on their swords."
Unfortunately, I doubt that any of the folks who campaigned, promoted, wheedled, cajoled, and outright lied to get the ACA passed happen to have a sword handy.

Oh, hey - you know what?  Neither did Dr. Mathias.
