Open thread: Sunday morning talking heads

The end of a disastrous week for ObamaCare means a Sunday morning spent sifting through the wreckage of the program’s rollout. Who better to headline it than Nancy Pelosi? She’ll be on “Meet the Press” to reiterate that no matter what those people in the newspapers and on TV and on the Internet who are clamoring to have their old plans back might say, she, personally, has never met someone who liked their insurance plan. Maybe she’ll even drop the phony bewilderment act that congressional Democrats have been pushing the past few weeks and own up to the fact that mass cancellations were part of the plan from the start. If there’s anyone in the party who might have the nerve to do that, it’s Nancy. You’re damned right she ordered the code red on affordable coverage, David Gregory.
If Sunday brunch with Pelosi isn’t your cup of tea, try Scott Walker on “This Week.” He’ll be on to discuss how the rollout trainwreck has thrown a wrench into his plan to move lower-income people onto the ObamaCare exchanges in lieu of expanding Medicaid in Wisconsin. I saw somewhere on Twitter on Friday too that he warned national Republicans not to be too giddy about the program’s implosion, as it’s middle-class people who are bearing the brunt of the chaos. Good advice. Probably won’t be heeded. The full line-up is at Politico.
