Did Someone Say "Glitch"?

Today ObamaCare went live in states across the country – sort of. Though the president admitted there would be “glitches” along the way, he never warned how widespread the errors in this government-run health care system would be.

Headlines highlight the delays, errors, and, yes, glitches that are creating angst and frustration as the American people struggle to navigate the next phase in the government takeover of health care:

Unfortunately, today’s botched ObamaCare rollout is not entirely unexpected. As Chairmen Fred Upton, John Kline, and Dave Camp noted in a recent op-ed:

The American people face costly and onerous mandates, small businesses struggle to keep up with rising costs, doctors frustrated with the challenges of a government-run health care system, and the security of Americans’ health and financial information is unknown. 

Add October 1 to the list of dates on which the Obama administration pretends a unworkable health care scheme is precisely what the American people were promised.
