Happy Thursday.

Some shutdown post-mortems:

Jonah Goldberg (NR): "No fair minded person can really argue that this predicament is where the Republican leadership wants to be."

Rick Klein (ABC News): "The lights are coming back on. But there’s little worth gazing on in Washington."

Nicholas Johnston (Bloomberg): "The @robertcostaNRO rally..."

Brett Norman (Politico): "With the shutdown over and a default averted, Washington has another train wreck to sift through: the Obamacare rollout."

Speaking of Obamacare:

NY Times has the story on page A18 of a guy who managed to log in to a state Obamacare exchange, but then discovered that there was no way to tell whether the listed healthcare plans would cover his medication or let him keep his doctor. "Exasperated, he put off completing his application." Also note this bit:

Problems finding providers or drug coverage are occurring mainly on state exchanges paradoxically because those Web sites are working better than the federal insurance exchange used by 36 states. The federal exchange has been so crippled by technical problems that most consumers have been unable to advance far enough to compare plans, search for providers or review drug coverage.

Visits to Healthcare.gov dropped 88% from its first week. "Obama administration officials challenged the independent assessment but did not release any specific enrollment figures."
