I remain perplexed by the Journal's editorial positions. And no, not because I always disagree with them. It's because they often violate their own principles. It is no secret the Journal is a very conservative and libertarian newspaper. After spending untold dollars in ink, newsprint, and time denigrating Obamacare (and Obama) the Journal decides that it is now important to sign up for MnSure at the last moment? Did they not go to the archives and read about this horrid government invasion of our freedoms? The new ACA Is not perfect. But it does start the ball rolling towards some form of more equitable system of health care. Yes we do have "the greatest healthcare system in the world". But,only if you can afford it. And not all can. Obamacare is a step towards fixing that slight glitche in our system. And perhaps if the Journal had not waited 3 years to recognize that fact, it's editorial yesterday would have not been necessary!

They were probably waiting to make sure the website was operational before directing people to it. I don't see how you could expect them to send people to a site that wasn't functioning until recently. Obama care has denigrated itself , it didn't need the Journal to do that. Obama just moved the due date back to mid April for anyone "trying " to get insurance (no documentation needed, on the honor system) ,so really they didn't wait till the last minute,3 weeks to go.

While I whole heartedly agree that the health care roll out was a disaster, that does not deter from the fact that the Journal has been a consistent critic of its namesake, premise, cost, timing, rollout etc. There were no calming editorials calling for patience, never was a non disparaging word uttered. Like so many of the Journal editorials, they are long on criticism and short on solutions! (See Crimea). That is why I was so flabbergasted. It is almost like the regular editorialists took a day off, and someone from the Star Tribune snuck in overnight!!
