So after spending $3.2 million on the lamest ad ever (click that if you dare), Oregon still failed to enroll ONE PERSON through the Obamacare site.

I'll be the first to admit that the healthcare rollout has been nothing short of disastrous. Maybe giving in to Republican requests during the "shutdown" to delay it for a year wouldn't have been such a bad idea. Despite being for the idea of healthcare availability to more people myself, this botched rollout does give a pretty solid illustration as to why lots of people would prefer things like this remain in the realm of private business as much as possible. Government cannot run things as efficiently or effectively as private industry can most of the time. That said, the current health care system is broken and nobody was doing anything about it; in cases like that the government is almost always going to get involved, for good or for ill.
