The Real Problem With Obamacare

As usual, the mainstream media is focused on symptoms rather than causes in covering the current fiasco with Obamacare -- reporting on webpage malfunctions and people getting dropped from health coverage. If one wants to get to the source of the problem it was Obama's failure to confront the medical industrial complex -- the hospitals, doctors, drug/medical devise companies, and health insurance companies. Rather than a single-payer plan that would expand Medicare to all, he accommodated all the vested interests.

So, sadly, Obamacare is getting what it deserves.

See a couple posts that elaborate further on this theme at Common Dreams and Ian Welsh.
