No health insurance at any price

The latest Obamacare catastrophe is so bad, it would be comical if it weren’t ruining lives. Due to a drafting error in the law (I’m assuming it was an error), it will be literally impossible to buy health insurance at any price in the Northern Mariana Islands:

Because of a quirk in the Affordable Care Act’s drafting, the Northern Mariana Islands and the four other American territories are subject to some parts of the law but not others. This has messed up the individual market in the Northern Mariana Islands so badly that the one plan selling policies there told the territory’s top insurance commissioner it would not sell new plans for 2014.

In other words: Beginning Jan. 1, regulators expect it will be literally impossible for an individual to buy a new policy in the Northern Mariana Islands, and difficult in other territories.

If you like your health insurance, you lose it, and you can’t get any to replace it.
