Sebelius: Pass Immigration Bill to Boost Obamacare Enrollment

Feds are building a detective squad to target consumers and companies that don’t follow Obamacare’s rules

    Daily Mail: More than 1,600 new employees hired by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Resources in the aftermath of Obamacare’s passage include just two described as ‘consumer safety’ officers, but 86 tasked with ‘criminal investigating’ – indicating that the agency is building an army of detectives to sleuth out violations of a law that many in Congress who supported it still find confusing.

Democracy and Political Ignorance: Selfish Voters are Not the Problem that Ails Democracy

    Ilya Somin at the Volokh Conspiracy: The problem, however, is that moderate altruism combined with a low probability of decisiveness is not enough to incentivize most voters to acquire more than a minimal amount of knowledge about they’re voting on. Thus, we get an equilibrium where lots of people vote out of a sincere desire to promote the public interest, but most of them have very little understanding of which policies are actually likely to do that. This problem is the focus of my new book Democracy and Political Ignorance.

Interview with Sen. Ted Cruz: Republican defeatism surprises me

    Rare.us: My biggest surprise has been the defeatism among some Republicans here. There was such a strong sense of confusion about November’s loss, and many believed we had to retrench and there was no way to stop the president and Democrats from running the table. In my view, even in the Senate minority, Republicans can do three things. First, we can stop bad bills.

    Byron York at NRO: On the other hand, a lot of thoughtful conservatives are looking beyond Oct. 1 to Jan. 1, the day the law (except for the parts the president has unilaterally postponed) is scheduled to go fully into effect. On that day the government will begin subsidizing health insurance for millions of Americans. (A family of four with income as high as $88,000 will be eligible for subsidies.) When people begin receiving that entitlement, the dynamics of the Obamacare debate will change. At that point, the Republican mantra of total repeal will become obsolete.
