I voted for Obama and all I got was this lousy website

Or why Joan Walsh was fucking right and the neolib wonky fanboys  wrong on the admittedly crappy healthcare.gov launch. First, I will simply note that the Rude Pundit himself calmly chimes in with a piece describing the Medicare Part D  rollout challenges. Soft bigotry of low expectations: Republicans judged on winning elections. Democrats judged on governing well, fixing Republican screw-ups, and winning elections.  And now I found I am all worn out  on this topic. If anyone even cares, they can go read my various comments on this Unfogged thread.

Or just contemplate this chart. Or read this paper from a Georgetown academic from June of this year comparing and contrasting the challenges of ACA with Medicare Part D.
