You’vegot a problem. Seems Oregon’s health care exchange is, on the eve of Christmas, throwing up its hands and saying to those applying for (mandatory) coverage, “Hey, don’t look at us. You’re on your own.”

As Brent Hunsberger of The Oregonianreports:

Oregon's troubled health insurance exchange began robocalling applicants Friday, warning them that if they don't receive enrollment confirmation by Monday, they should seek coverage elsewhere for Jan. 1.

"If you haven't heard from us by Dec. 23, it is unlikely your application will be processed for Jan. 1 insurance coverage," a woman's voice on the pre-recorded call from Cover Oregon says. "If you want to be sure you have insurance coverage starting Jan. 1, you have other options."

The political class likes to talk about the “right” to this and that. Usually when it is promising some new cost-free benefit that will make life so much better for everyone. How about a new one?

The right not to be jerked around by incompetents.
