So let me quote from an email from a San Francisco contractor who is "very angry over this new health care act." Kaiser informed him that for him to comply with the new law, his deductible would rise from $2,700 per year to $4,500, and his premiums would rise from $356 to $567. "All I ever heard was that if you currently had health insurance, you need not worry; you could keep your same coverage, your doctor, and nothing would change for you. Wrong, wrong, wrong."

Voters never should have believed that Washington could provide the same benefits -- no, more benefits -- to millions more Americans and still people would pay less. That thinking, not computer glitches, is the real "kink in the system" of Obamacare.
