Paul Bedard writes of the latest reason for apprehension about the coming of Obamacare:

The 61-page online Obamacare draft application for health care includes asking if the applicant wants to register to vote, raising the specter that pro-Obama groups being tapped to help Americans sign up for the program will also steer them to register with the Democratic Party.

You do have to wonder, though, how many people will be inclined, after wrestling with a 61 page form, to reward the people who designed not just that form but the program behind it. Especially after they have learned that what is called the Affordable Care Act actually makes medical insurance more expensive and chases a number of doctors out of the medical profession.

Gratitude is not what many will be feeling.
