Thanks to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), President Obama has lost credibility as a leader and effective executive with most Americans.
A good CEO must work within the strengths and limitations of his organization — then execute effectively to deliver on the promises he makes.
The ACA website, Healthcare.gov, even with many efforts at improvement, is simply not easy to use or adequately effective.
As of Nov. 30, 365,000 Americans signed up for insurance via that website and the other exchanges set up by the states. This is well short of the administration's target and makes it unlikely that 7 million will sign up by March 31, as expected by the Department of Health and Human Services.
Many who have failed to participate are young and healthy — those whose participation is needed to make the insurance policies offered viable.
