Congressional Republicans were “right” about the fact she should resign, but only to the extend a stopped clock happens to be right twice a day. If you choose to blindly oppose everything, you will sometimes happen to be right.

When talking about health care the media has been conflating what are actually two very different things which just happen to contain the figure “7 million.” There is the 7 million signup benchmark for success set by the Obama administration and the 7 million covered by exchange plans projected by the Congressional Budget Office last year. While they may sound interchangeable they are not.

In preparation for her appearance before the Health and Human Services Committee tomorrow, Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has released her written testimony. While she says very little about the source of Healthcare.gov’s problems, it appears she is going to place almost all the blame on the contractors and drag out the old line about too many people trying to log on.

I consider it entirely unacceptable that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius will not testifybefore Congress about the problems with the Affordable Care Act rollout. Her pathetic excuse is scheduling conflicts, but there is nothing that should be more important.

We began the week with the government shutdown and the looming threat of a financial default, and it ended with a temporary deal to reopen things and Chuck Todd saying that John Boehner is now a stronger speaker of the House. (Earth to Chuck: No. To borrow from John Cleese, Boehner is not pining for the fjords.) What coupld top this?
Leave it to Kansas . . .

Sebelius’s excuse is not an argument against going to single-player, this is an argument for why you should have gone for single-payer. If the Republicans are going to completely freak out regardless, there is no reason to compromise. The political response from the GOP will be the same.

If you choose to make your plan needlessly complex, you won’t get any slack when you run into problems implementing it.
