Max Baucus - Caricature

You know your law is in trouble when the main man behind the legislation, and I don’t mean Obama, is getting nervous.

Max Baucus of Montana (who is up for reelection in 2014, and Republicans feel he’s vulnerable) is pressing Kathleen Sebelius, head of Health and Human Services, for results. He sees a train wreck coming because people won’t understand how it is supposed to work.

Wow, that’s stunning. It was more important to push the train wreck through than to make it easy on people. There’s only 61 pages of instructions, and over 20,000 pages of regulations.

Citing anecdotal evidence from small businesses in his home state, Baucus asked Sebelius for specifics about how it is measuring public understanding of the law.

“You need data. Do you have any data? You’ve never given me data. You only give me concepts, frankly,” Baucus told Sebelius.

Sebelius said the administration is not independently monitoring public awareness of specific provisions but will be embarking on an education campaign beginning this summer.

We will all be sent to the party reeducation camps where we will learn to love Obamacare!

Isn’t that just like the government, though? No facts and figures, no hard data. Just pure, raw, emotion.

Are you getting scared yet?
