More Incompetence

OK, two posts in one day.  New record. 

Here is another note from Kaiser Health News -

Consumer Groups Fear Patients Could Be Hit With Large Out-Of-Pocket Costs.

Why will this happen?  Because the Administration has not yet figured out - they have only had three years - how to adjust employers' arrangements for health insurance that combines multiple policies.  Health plans and employers ask for a delay, and they get it with no comment from HHS.  I have heard the excuse - seriously - that while the government was not sure how the lawsuits against the constitutionality of PPACA would come out, they were reluctant to allocate resources to preparing for implementation.

Really?  Do I hear the cry of further incompetence?  You would think, if PPACA is the "signature statement" of the Obama Administration, it would not be government business as usual.  It is just disheartening.
