The far-left Huffington Post just cried “uncle” on the issue of the Affordable Care Act, and it didn’t mince any words in doing so. Friday morning it tweeted this message to its 347,000-plus followers:
Obamacare website disaster threatens health coverage for millions http://t.co/ooJtQSWcXx

The Huffington Post reported that President Obama has finally admitted that HealthCare.gov is riddled with far more “glitches” than first revealed.
But the administration won’t disclose exactly what’s wrong with the health insurance exchange website, or when consumers can expect to see the promise of convenient, one-stop shopping for health benefits and financial assistance fulfilled.
Time remains for these problems to be resolved, but not much. “If things aren’t resolved in three weeks, we’ve got some serious, serious problems,” said Timothy Jost, a law professor and health care reform expert at Washington & Lee University in Lexington, Va., and an Obamacare supporter. “I don’t think we’re anywhere close to there yet, but if the whole thing collapses, it’ll be another generation before we get this problem fixed.”
The Post received some interesting replies to its tweet. Here are a few of my favorites:
@HuffPostPol too early for I told you so? Nahhh.

And still the Obama administration obstinately holds on to the idea that its going to get everyone signed up to health care insurance by January 1. Gppd luck with that one.
