    Of course, if the feds do a decent job, most people won't care, but rest assured that any conservative who runs into any problems with the insurance they choose will blame Obama anyway.

    There was a diary this week by a doctor talking about a patient with junk (employer-provided?) insurance, which didn't cover sleep apnea treatment as many policies do, and it was costing her a bundle. She blamed Obamacare. Of course, Obamacare would allow her to look for better insurance on the exchanges, but he felt it was too political to explain it to her. I disagree. I think that giving patients information about how the health insurance law works, when it can help them deal with their current healthcare needs, is part of their job.
