Scott is way ahead of me this morning, owning to his time zone advantage, in flagging the latest news about the Obamacare faceplant, though we should also flag the Wall Street Journal‘s lead story today about how problems of “coordination” are behind the trouble. If anyone in Obamaland had ever read Hayek, like I’ve been saying, they’d have known this would founder on “coordination” problems.
Kim Strassell’s Friday WSJ column notes how more and more Democrats are trying to jump off the sinking ship, but this squib from ABC News’s morning briefly is too delicious not to pass along in toto:
Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Calif., said, “There are thousands of websites that carry far more traffic. So I think that’s really kind of a lame excuse. Amazon and eBay don’t crash the week before Christmas and ProFlowers doesn’t crash on Valentine’s Day. “Are you saying that you didn’t test? That the test worked very well, both inside and out? Or that you turned it all over to CMS? Anybody want to answer?” Eshoo continued, drawing a long period of silence from all of the witnesses. “If you don’t have an answer, just say that you don’t.”
Trust me: they don’t. Expect the volume to be turned up on the “it’s all the Republicans’ fault” excuse.
