Well, duh.

Remember: All of this was by design.  Failure was the great promise of ObamaCare.  Implosion was the plan.  Democrats were counting on it, with the intention that Hillary would be in office to pick up the pieces and march the nation over the single-payer cliff.

That, of course, is where the plan fell apart.

But, boy, did they ever get the first part right. The collapse is right on schedule.

For conservatives, there's nothing shocking about this. We predicted it long before Obama's fever-dream became his "signature achievement."  Anyone who took even a cursory glance at the actual content of the law knew the death spiral would start before the President's siugnature dried. It was always going to end up exactly as it has.

The only thing that's even mildly surprising about the collapse is how vocal the insurers are being. 

Just imagine, Democrats, if you hadn't chosen to cheat your own primary system to nominate the atrocity known as Hillary Clinton.  Why, you might have gotten your heart's desire...

Whoops!
