ObamaCare Schadenfreude

Jonah Goldberg writes that, while we cannot find joy in the misery the failure ObamaCare is causing people who have lost their health insurance or seen costs skyrocket, or the costs it is and will exact on the economy, we should find some measure of joy or satisfaction in seeing Obama hubris and lies exposed and exploded.

Goldberg reminds us of Obama's lies:

Here’s a number that isn’t tiny: Five million people — and counting — have lost their health insurance, despite the president’s years of “you can keep your plan” promises. The president has apologized, sort of. He says he’s “sorry” that people have found themselves in a bad situation because of “assurances” he made. But no one has lost their insurance because of the president’s assurances, they’ve lost their insurance because of the president’s law. If a captain has the lifejackets filled with cement, his assurance that “you can keep your lifejacket” is only half the crime.  Obama knew the lifejackets wouldn’t work. In 2010 he admitted that 8 to 9 million people in the individual market might “have to change their coverage” because of the law. And that’s just the individual market. Millions more will eventually lose the insurance they like because of Obamacare, according to the administration’s own internal estimates.
The cancellations aren’t a bug, they’re a feature, and the president lied about it over and over again.
 Read the whole thing.
