Earlier in the day, the White House tweeted Halloween greetings featuring a pumpkin with “get covered” carved into it. Naturally, much of the mockery of Obamacare revolves around the train wreck of that is HealthCare.gov, but Sally Kohn reminded everyone that there’s a lot more to it.

“One piece of candy in the entire Obamacare goodie bag.” Take comfort in that at your own peril. Many consider it a warning rather than a feature:

“Only one piece of candy in the entire Obamacare goodie bag” is a bizarre sales pitch considering the lack of performance of HealthCare.gov. “But wait, there’s more” only works when the current product you’re demonstrating hasn’t been a miserable failure.
So far it appears America is stuck holding a giant bag of “don’t do this to me.”
