POINTS AND FIGURES: The Secret No One is Talking About Buried In Obamacare.
Obamacare is a total fail. It’s too clunky. They didn’t exactly use Lean Startup principles when they wrote the bill.
One of the goals of Obamacare which I agree with in principle is to separate employment from health insurance. Tying them together creates all kinds of poor economic incentives. But, the ACA law is littered with even worse economic incentives. One of them is mobility.
Obamacare will cause people to freeze in geographic location.
Screw ups Incorporated … ObamaCare screw up sends callers to cupcake shop
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.
“I have nothing to do with this,” said Carmen Rodriguez owner of Brooklyn Cupcake in Williamsburg. “I run a very busy establishment, and I’m like, what is going on?”

Another glitch …. But then it got fixed ….
As if the mysterious “glitch” wasn’t strange enough, NBC News — inadvertently or not — later republished the article without the following key paragraph:
None of this should come as a shock to the Obama administration. The law states that policies in effect as of March 23, 2010 will be “grandfathered,” meaning consumers can keep those policies even though they don’t meet requirements of the new health care law. But the Department of Health and Human Services then wrote regulations that narrowed that provision, by saying that if any part of a policy was significantly changed since that date — the deductible, co-pay, or benefits, for example — the policy would not be grandfathered.
It was added back in to the article roughly 30 minutes after it was republished, but the discrepancy was again not noted in the article.
The website Weasel Zippers was able to screengrab both versions, before and after the “glitch.”
