The Heritage Foundation takes us for a walk down memory lane, parting the veil of time to peer back into the shadowy recesses of the distant past (i.e. last week) and remember all the iron-clad, “let us be clear” promises that ObamaCare’s March 31 sign-up deadline was solid as a rock:

This is also the same Administration that keeps pronouncing itself delighted with the pace of ObamaCare signups, although its officials and Chief Executive melt into puddles of flop sweat when asked any follow-up questions about their dubious enrollment figures – such as how many of the applicants are healthy young people, how many previously lacked insurance, and especially how many have paid the first premium to secure valid policies.
