And More Obamacare Schadenfreude Too

I neglected the Obamacare Schadenfreude refrigerator, and the meat is getting a little gray and the vegetables a little limp. So let's see if I can get this done with a minimum of fuss:

A bunch of articles on the general malaise in Obamacare as the death spiral take another orbit around the drain. First the Wall Street Journal: The Slow-Motion Implosion of ObamaCare, while The Hill's version of the same story: ObamaCare's tough road ahead. Even CBS In year 3, many hit with Obamacare sticker shock. In response to the CBS story Twitch has ‘UNEXPECTEDLY!’ Effect of ‘Affordable’ Care Act not exactly a ‘shock’ for many. No shock at The Lonely Conservative: Obamacare: It Just Keeps Getting Worse and from the STUMP Where Stu & MP spout off about everything, Remember my Obamacare Prediction? I Didn't Predict Hard Enough. HotAir expresses it's concern for the poor suckers people in fly over country: Oklahomans still looking for the “affordable” in the Affordable Care Act

The coops keep falling like autumn leaves. From the DC Caller: Did New York’s Obamacare Co-op Deliberately Mislead Regulators? And again from the Lonely Conservative, the story of Arizona's failing co-op Another Obamacare Co-Op Bites The Dust.

Another set are not as closely related to the death spiral:

From George Mason University Mercatus Center: Growth in State Medicaid Spending Crowding Out Spending on Other Major State Programs. We're not quite a retirement/health care system with a military, but we're getting close.

And finally, from Doug Ross's Journal, the secret of maintaining health insurance enrollments - Zombies! SAY, IS THIS A CLINTON INITIATIVE? NY Obamacare Exchange Enrolls Hundreds Who Appear to be... Dead Zombies are probably good for Obamacare; they rarely seek treatment, and if something goes wrong, you can just chop it off with a katana.
