The 4% Solution


"Only 4% of people who signed up for ObamaCare got the correct subsidy"


Expected, of course; actually, I'm surprised the "success" rate was that high. After all, calculating one's subsidy necessarily meant that one was guesstimating the next year's income. Since I've never seen a Ouija board with a $ sign on it, this always seemed...unlikely.

And it didn't help that the IRS sent out faulty forms to over three quarters of a million suckers filers, "nearly all of [whom] are being told they'll have to wait, maybe until Oct. 15, to straighten it out."

Oh goodie!

The good news (for certain values of "good") is that folks will get to repeat this process again in a mere 12 months. One wonders if a) the IRS will finally have the correct forms available and b) significant numbers of suckers citizens will choose to play again.

Time will tell.
