The Affordable Care Act is so complex, and according to Greg Scandlin at The National Center for Policy Analysis, so poorly written, that large pieces of Obamacare just won’t happen because they literally make no sense. (Or demand unicorns.)
Billions and billions of dollars have been spent implementing “exchanges” and other parts of the health care law, which will yield no fruit.
If you think our tax code is dizzying and rife with cronyism, we are going to see, and have already seen, a whole bunch more with the command and control effort from Washington DC. This shouldn’t hurt job creation one bit.

But this abysmal track record is only setting the stage for the big failures to come — the Health Insurance Exchanges and the Individual Mandate.
