Our Health Care Is In The Best Of Hands

Obama’s schedule for today:

10:55 am || Delivers remarks on Obamacare
4:25 pm || Attends a DNC fundraiser

I am ever-so-anxious to hear what Dear Leader has to say about Obamacare. What he’s not going to say is the truth. He won’t mention this:

The Obamacare that consumers will finally be able to sign up for next week is a long way from the health plan President Barack Obama first pitched to the nation.

Millions of low-income Americans won’t receive coverage. Many workers at small businesses won’t get a choice of insurance plans right away. Large employers won’t need to provide insurance for another year. Far more states than expected won’t run their own insurance marketplaces. And a growing number of workers won’t get to keep their employer-provided coverage.

In fact, a lot of people are going to find themselves out of full-time employment as businesses cut the hours of it’s employees to get under that magic number of 50 full-time employees.

So what is Obama going to say today?

That’s why Obama is asking millions of Americans to just give the law a chance — go to the Web, sign up for a health care plan starting Oct. 1 and claim a new benefit that’s there for the taking on Jan.

Just give the law a chance.

But to get it to work, Obama needs to convince young folks to give it a chance. More accurately, to pay for it. Taranto:

Here’s former Enron adviser Paul Krugman, writing the other day on the New York Times website: “Yep, when it comes to reaching hipsters, or young people in general–I know, Katy Perry–Dems have big advantages; all that coastal cultural elite hatred suddenly turns into a big disadvantage for the right.” Brilliant idea, except that Katy Perry can’t even seem to get those young “hipsters” to pay for her recordings.

I can’t wait for that.
