When Democrats passed Obamacare on a party-line vote in March 2010, the Congressional Budget Office estimated that by 2016, 21 million people would receive health insurance through the law's exchanges. In reality, just 10 million people did.

Why would the former head of a federal agency write an opinion essay defending a federal regulation he created without ever naming the regulation he is trying to defend?

Because he doesn’t want you to know there was a time when the regulation never existed.

When I ran for re-election last year, I again ran on a promise to repeal Obamacare.
