Three pots burning on the stove

The Obama administration political whack a mole continues. Just a few weeks ago, the hottest topic for the press was the VA hospital meltdown.
You still hear stories, but that mess has ben replaced by a new mess. This 5-1 kidnap swap.
Now, it's blown up so much the kid's hometown doesn't even want to throw him a welcome home party because of threats. In the meantime, most of you probably have not even heard of the problems with Obamacare.
More snags in the system mean-- according to the Associated Press -- more than 2-million people may not be getting the insurance they paid for or the insurance they thought they bought.
Mediate reports many Democrats have assured themselves that Republicans are slowly and quietly giving up on repealing the ACA. And the GOP's "repeal and replace" message has, in fact, been shelved. But a report in the Washington Examiner reveals why: the GOP can only pursue "repeal" of the law when the president leaves office in 2017. For many, that position concedes that nothing can or will be done to reform the nation's health care system for years.
Judging by the latest ACA disaster story, it is no wonder why voters do not want to wait that long for a true health care fix. Now the president has three dishes burning on the stove at the same time.
What a mess.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
