Outrage about HealthCare.gov and millions losing health plans should scare the wits out of liberals. With enough money, the morass can be fixed, but it lay bare the limits of tax and spend to buy voter allegiance.

The liberal formula is simple. Target a few Americans to soak, and pander to the base instincts of the masses. President Obama's favorite mark is wealthy Americans who benefited most from recent economic growth. Characterize them as undeserving and exploitive — disdainfully he expounds those folks claim they did it with hard work, leaving his followers to conclude their affluence was built on the back of the common man. Then it becomes reasonable that the well-off pay higher taxes to continue public benefits.

In 2008, candidate Obama bit off more than he could chew. He promised everyone access to cheaper and better health insurance, and to let those satisfied keep their existing plans. If paid from the U.S. Treasury, new benefits would have cost at least $1 trillion.

Hot News Flash:  Those 2 million people who have received cancellation notices, so far, are decidedly NOT the rich.

Neither will the 93 million in employer plans who will begin getting cancellation notices this time next year.
