New York state Health Department sending desperate #obamacare callers to… cupcake shop.

This is not a good month for Obamacare.

Thanks to ObamaCare, New Yorkers can now get health insurance with rainbow sprinkles.

In yet another bungle for the botched government insurance rollout, the state Health Department has mistakenly listed numerous non-health-related business as enrollment sites — including a Brooklyn cupcake shop that has been besieged by callers.

The aggravating bit? If we had a proper free market, that cupcake shop could take advantage of this screwup and start selling those people health insurance policies.

Via… somebody or other.

    Having walked past a long line for a Georgetown cupcakery recently, I wonder how long until we can have federal exchanges selling us high quality cupcakes at reasonable prices and without lines. The current system obviously advantages the wealthy and the healthy who can afford $6 treats and have the physical stamina to stand in lines.

      Three points for verbing advantage.

      Under the Nanny Bloomberg food reform laws, high-end cupcakes will be permitted but doughnuts can no longer be sold.
      .
      Doughnut holes will be exempt provided they meet sizing guidelines.
      .
      Posession of beignets will be punishable by being forced to listen to Justin Bieber’s latest album on endless repeat.

    One would think that would NOT be part of their business plan. You have got to stick to the plan!
