George Will: ‘Most transparent administration in history’ is complaining about Obamacare leaks

Posted By Jeff Poor On 7:55 PM 11/01/2013 In | No Comments

On Friday’s broadcast of “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel, Washington Post columnist George Will reacted to a CBS News report on Obamacare’s shockingly low enrollment numbers.

On Thursday, Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News revealed that on it first two days Obamacare enrolled only six people by the end of its first day and 248 by the end of the second day.

On Friday’s show, Will said President Barack Obama is trying to distract attention from those lousy numbers.

“Subtract six from 7 million — that’s number they expect to have or need to have signed up by March,” Will said. “And we see the hill they have to climb. There’s an old axiom in Washington: If you don’t like news, make some of you own. So, the president went to Boston, and with utter predictability, turned this into an attack on insurance companies — ‘bad apple insurers’ whose sin was selling customers policies that customers wanted but that the administration thinks they shouldn’t want.”

Earlier in the day, White House press secretary Jay Carney dismissed CBS’ numbers as cherry-picked leaks from the Republicans and called the low numbers a “dog-bites-man story.” But Will pointed out the irony that the Obama administration, which prided itself on its transparency, was now complaining about leaks of information it claimed it did not have.

“This has been ‘the most transparent administration in history’ by its own description is complaining today about leaks from itself from documents that leaked numbers that it claims it doesn’t have,” Will added. “It’s not a pretty picture.”

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
