SALENA ZITO: The View From ‘Tea Party Country.’

“Washington should note that the public’s patience is finite and that no party is immune to growing populism. Out here in ‘flyover country,’ that makes tea party activism seem, well, like a dainty tea party.”

Silicon Valley Cringes … A Kayak For Healthcare

October 26, 2013

>As Healthcare.gov Falters, Silicon Valley Cringes (‘State of the Art Incompetence’)

This week, as programmers in Washington scrambled to fix the glitch-ridden healthcare.gov, the centerpiece of the Obama administration’s Affordable Care Act architecture, their counterparts in Silicon Valley viewed the situation with a mixture of rolled eyes and sympathy.

Spin, Becomes Lies …

October 25, 2013

Washington post reports more people have gotten cancelled so far, than have gotten past the log in screen on the government website …

One has to wonder how many other carriers will soon be dropping the hammer on consumers.

Top programmers are in high demand, and they can get excellent salaries or the possibility of major upside from stock options. That’s true even in entry-level positions right out of college. It’s difficult for the government to compete with that on a civil service pay scale.

Co-Op Country

October 15, 2013

JAMES TARANTO: Co-Op Country: A real estate metaphor for Washington.

 No one can outdo Thomas Friedman in the production of labored metaphors, but give Paul Krugman an “E” for Enron–uh, we mean effort. . . .
