Hamilton: Boy Survives Healthcare.gov-Like Waterpark Accident

June 7, 2017

The construction of a publicly funded San Francisco-area waterpark illustrates the hazards of the United States' government-run, taxpayer-funded health care system.

A 10-year-old boy has survived hydroplaning and ejection from an 80-degree-sloping waterslide constructed primarily with public funds. The near-miss is a relief to all, especially those familiar with botched government projects. The launch of the federal health insurance exchange under the Affordable Care Act, Healthcare.gov, for example, was beset with flaws the Barack Obama administration should have easily avoided.
