Quote of the Day, This Is Pretty Much What “Kafkaesque” Means edition. #obamacare

You know, the administration should start worrying about stories like this. This is from a supporter:

I went to a friend and colleague—let’s call him Peter—for advice. He also had his individual medical policy cancelled because of Obamacare. “I’m stuck on the same question—income,” he told me. Peter does a little writing, a little farming, a little this and that to keep the ship afloat. “I got through to the exchange, and the woman there told me to just estimate what my income would be this year.” In other words: Make it up. If he overestimated, he’d be screwing himself out of a subsidy, Peter said. If he underestimated, he’d be hit with a big fat bill. He wasn’t sure he wouldn’t also be accused of fraud. So he called his accountant, who’s also a lawyer.

That only got him so far. At a certain point in the conversation, the accountant/lawyer had to get off the phone. “I have to stop answering your questions,” he told Peter. “I can’t ethically advise you, because honestly I don’t know the right thing to do. Nobody does. There are no answers. Right now it’s a complete clusterf[*]ck.”


Yeah, it turns out that if you don’t know what the law is, it gets kind of hard to comply with it. Better hope that you guess the same way as whoever it was that will eventually adjudicate your case!

    Obviously he never noticed Clarity and Competence are not in O’bamas’ repertoire.

    I’m still waiting for that one person. That one person that says, “I paid full price (no subsidies) for Obamacare and it’s exactly what I hoped it would be.” Will we ever see even ONE person say that?

    Pelosi was correct. We passed it, and now we definitely know what’s in it.

    The bad news is that to believe in liberalism you must also support clusterf***s (War On Poverty, so maybe it’s not all that bad for them.
