You Can't Keep Your Plan 

The Obama Administration yesterday attempted to deflect the bad news from the congressional hearings on the failed launch of Obamacare by releasing the latest enrollment figures for the program. According to an administration spokeswoman, approximately 700,000 applications have been received from Obamacare's state and federal exchanges.

Millions Will Lose Current Policies 

Yesterday I reported that hundreds of thousands of people had received notices from their health insurance companies cancelling their current policies. It turns out that's just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Millions of Americans are going to lose their existing coverage.

The Blame Game Begins 

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has dutifully tried to protect Obama, claiming he was unaware of Healthcare.gov's problems. But behind the scenes her allies are pointing fingers at the Obama White House.

Obama's "Credibility Death Spiral" 

The news about Obamacare seems to be going from bad to worse. The good news is that even Obama's liberal media allies are finding it difficult to ignore. Here's a small sample of stories from the past 24 hours:

Obama Defends Obamacare 

Three weeks in and with no end in sight, President Obama was finally forced to address Obamacare's disastrous rollout. Of course, he delivered yet another speech defending his signature initiative.

Shutdown Showdown: Day 7 

Speaker John Boehner appeared on ABC's "This Week" Sunday to defend the GOP position on Obamacare, the debt ceiling and the government shutdown. 

He did well, especially when you consider that he was being interviewed by George Stephanopoulos, a former top advisor to President Bill Clinton. The news media's liberal filter could not have been more obvious.
