Obamacare or whatdoicare

Writing legislation must be one of the most frustrating things in this world.  In order to do a good job for the public, the voting legislators must have enough specifics to evaluate the program but  the legislation must have enough "wiggle room" to allow for changes and fixes.  Projections must be made and the projections must be close enough to be reliable.  But how is that possible when, for example, Obama's people were predicting that as many as 375,000 people would have signed up for high-risk insurance by the end of 2010 when in-fact by the end of November only 8,000 people have.  That's only slightly more than 2%.  What does that say about the rest of the bill.
