    ...Most Democrats are eager to believe any good news, which may explain why the Sunday report is so short on basic information. The eight pages are heavy on charts with unverifiable claims—more than 400 "cumulative software fixes"!—and the Health and Human Services Department declares that "we believe we have met the goal of having a system that will work smoothly for the vast majority of users."

    This weekend miracle defies other evidence, such as the recent admission by an HHS official that 30% to 40% of the exchanges are still unfinished. Much of this involves the "back end" of the exchange operation that provides information to insurers but that consumers don't see. In a pre-Thanksgiving news dump, HHS even gave up on the federal exchanges for small business and delayed those for a year.

    The truth is that the White House is defining as a "success" however well or poorly the website actually works so it can declare political victory. The millions of people who've had their old coverage cancelled must re-enroll by December 23 to avoid gaps in coverage by the New Year. So like the Keynesian multiplier for stimulus spending, the White House is revising its goals along the way and claiming success based on nonfalsifiable standards.

    I'd be delighted to know how anyone can find any "good news" in this. I haven't seen such a large pile of dinosaur excrement since the scene from "Jurassic Park" wherein Laura Dern was elbow-deep in it.
