On a morning when the New York Times is gamely touting all the “free, free, free” bronze policies that come without your doctor –or any doctors?– I want to make sure you have seen

Tomorrow’s vote in Virginia is being impacted by the collapse of Obamacare, but it was also impacted by the government shutdown.  The president went over the river to sow bipartisan seeds to blossom in the budget deal, but if Virginians have half a brain they will vote for their AG who has been battling Ocare’s rollout from the start.

Trouble is, the “Federal City” is the federal blob, and its vast numbers are reaching further and further into the northernVirginia suburbs, the very set of self-interested government employees who are in a position to know that, as much as they know Obamacare to be a bust, there FEHB is locked in and they have to keep the barbarians from sending a message that D.C. is not the center of the world.

“Moderates” in New Jersey, of course, should be just as mad as the center in Virginia, right, and Christie struggling?  Except he’s not.  Christie is romping.  So it will be issues that drive the Virginia race in tomorrow night’s analysis, but personality in NJ.  That’s how predictable the MSM has become.  Predictable and ineffective.

Obamacare –– is knifing through Democratic hearts and Democratic incumbents from districts and states where federal employees don’t number in the hundreds of thousands aren’t going to take much joy from a McAullife win should it come to pass, and a Cuccinelli upset will start a palace revolt.

Here’s a promise I have made.  If you like Obamacare coverage on the radio, you can keep it.  If you like the way I have been covering Obamacare, you can keep it.

I don’t think it is possible to “over cover” the “undercoverage” of Obamacare as health care is near and dear to everyone’s heart and to the lives of their loved ones.  The president has blundered terribly here because instead of increasing the welfare state at the margin, he set about destroying a crucial part of the lives of millions who produce the wealth that powers the welfare state. is just getting started.  Only individual policies are getting thrown into the thresher this year. Next year it will be small groups.  The political blowback will continue until the law is in whole or large part repealed and replaced with common-sense approaches to the high-risk pool, portability, and the cross-staet line availability of the best policies at the best prices.

Tomorrow’s vote?  In New Jersey at least it is a huge vote for candor and energy in tackling the most difficult problem, and for an attitude of defiance against the special interests that crippled New Jersey until Christie came along, and which are crippling D.C. now.
