Why Obama should be
freaked out by Obamacare

National Journal, by Ron Fournier

Original Article

Posted By:Fiesta del sol, 10/21/2013 10:34:16 AM

President Obama is "frustrated" by the disastrous launch of an online computer marketplace for Obamacare, the White House says. Here are five reasons why frustration isn´t enough. He should be frightened.1. It´s worse than his team has let on. The White House has tried to position the failed first days of Obamacare as mere "glitches" caused by the site´s popularity. An administration spokesman told the Washington Post on Sunday that the "main driver of the problem is volume." That is intentionally misleading. The White House has heard complaints from insurance companies, consumers, and health policy experts about issues embedded deeply

We´ve been frightened since it was rammed through, Ron.

Last line of the article is nauseatingly puke worthy. "How ironically sad it would be if Obamacare is denied a fair shake because of it´s namesake´s mismanagement."

Ya just don´t get it do you Fournier? The people didn´t want this bill. Not a single republican voted for it. It has never been, never will be "popular" Its bad law, bad legislation, and despite what the Supreme Court ruled, unconstitutional.

“Application” means only that they have made contact and have successfully rendered all their personal information . . . they still don’t have healthcare nor does it indicate that their application has even been approved. All of this must be flowing through Obama’s “Department of Obfuscation and Vague Clarity”.

Interesting how the only people who appear to have successfully enrolled (purchase a plan) are those in State Exchanges. Sign-ups aren´t such a problem, while attempts to apply on the government website Healthcare.gov are impossible.

Did our president deliberately set out to punish the states that opted out of creating their own exchange?

Bush´s greatest failure in Katrina, the one that sank his credibility, was the utterance of three little words: "Great job, Brownie." Obama may beat him with one little word, a word that in future retrospect will be remembered over all the others. It may be the word of mockery that summarizes the 2014 campaign: "Glitches."

The company awarded Obamacare to write the code is CGI Federal.This company is based in Montreal Canada. It has written programs for the US and Canadian departments some successful . However one that CGI wrote for the Canadian Healthcare Medical Registry for Diabetic sufferers was so poor that officials scrapped the $46.2 Million contract after 3 years of missed deadlines.Anyone really in the WH checking past performance of this company. Any reason why they did not choose a US company and at the same time get people back to work.

You can get health insurance for your pet parakeet, cat, python, poodle, whatever. Do you have it? Probably not, but it´s not a bad idea. That said, if you don´t, like most pets, it´s not "DANGEROUS!" as you continue to emphasize. You can pay cash, work out installment terms, etc., for the veterinary care your pet requires to live.

The same is true with medical care. First research all that is available to a person diagnosed with cancer without medical insurance before writing such drivel.

By the way, it´s easier to pay off a medical bill than it is to pay off a Department of Education Student Loan, or should I call it, involuntary servitude.

#13 ~ it´s a Canadian company with a very large American presence. The good ol´boys who did this one work in Fairfax County VA.

Worse than this sign up thing ~ there are other ACA rules that´ve gone into effect earlier that have served to leave HMOs unable to use hospitals in the same service area.

The consequence for the 800,000 Kaiser customers in Fairfax County (roughly 3/4 of the population) is that to get a good, first class hospital they can´t use their own renowned INOVA system ~ they have to travel 75 miles to Baltimore.

ACA did this!~

Seems to me that a good standard of practice would be to make sure local people can use local resources!

Obama will be remembered as an IDIOT over this one. It´s not getting better.

#15 and #18, Justice Roberts could have been threatened with much worse things than simply having his children taken away.

Remember how The Won has operated ever since he entered politics - blackmail threats have been his main tool. He used that to get his first political office (back-stabbing an ally and mentor) and used it again to become a US Senator (sealed divorce papers mysteriously became unsealed, causing his far better-qualified opponent out of the race).

An investigation is definitely needed here.

I´ve written it before, so, I´ll re-write it:
We have arrived at utopia, the socialist paradise. There are no problems in utopia, for the power elite, that is.
Until we can repeal this bad law, just as other bad laws, such as prohibition, were repealed, we are living in socialist paradise.

Obama didn´t write Obamacare. He told his Congressional Democrats that he wanted a ´universal´ healthcare plan on his desk ASAP as his first order of business. He was too lazy to do any actual work on it, so the Democrat leaders dug out every old Democrat wish list on healthcare and rolled it into this monstrosity and passed it on a party line vote. And we are stuck with it. So is Obama.

Everyone should be freaked out by BOcare.

As a result of this legislation, those of us who pay privately for private health care insurance and coverage will have their medical records released (to prove they are insured) through the IRS.

Of which includes pre-existing conditions, long-term care - like cancer, a DNC, fertility treatments, treatment for blood and heart disease and so forth to made public.

Who in their right mind would ever go to a doctor? Oh, wait...doctors are retiring left and right. My OB/GYN just did (at 45).

I doubt Obie is freaked out by anything on this. This new chapter in chaos is well-scripted and quite intentional from his team. But, meanwhile, Obie and the dims took a pretty good blow on this issue despite the pubbies´ messaging problem (thanks msm). I now look for Obie to become the "savior" and delay the individual mandate for a year. That´s funny, isn´t that what Boehner´s had voted for in the House and Obie (why was HE even involved at that stage?) said no that he wanted to fight it out. Obie´s obvious over-arching goal was to damage the pubbies and gain some advantage for the 2014 mid-terms. What else is new? Short-term gains for Obie, but, I still think the pubbies bought themselves a big advantage...if they could only get themselves ALL on the same page in time for the next political game on this in early 2014. And it is time to marginalize and freeze the msm.

fta: "There are two possible explanations for the Obama administration´s unconscionable lack of transparency.." No, there´s another, which is that perhaps they built in some politically driven components, and this is why they wanted to be the integrators themselves, and hug the task even now. the integrator would know of any secret rooms or Easter eggs etc.

Hundreds of thousands have been shifted to part time to avoid the requirement for employers to offer insurance. Hundreds of thousands of retirees and spouses have been dropped employer coverage. Hundreds of thousand of fast food workers and students have lost low cost catastrophic insurance that doesn´t meet all the HHS requirements. And Ron is worried about Obama being embarrassed?

On Pascua Yakui Indian Reservation, Ariz. — Tribal police chief Michael Valenzuela drove through darkened desert streets, turned into a Circle K convenience store and pointed to the spot beyond the reservation line where his officers used to take the non-Indian men who battered Indian women. “We would literally drive them to the end of the reservation and tell them to beat it,” Valenzuela said. “And hope they didn’t come back that night.

An 89-year-old Navajo woman wants the land she´s lived on all her life to be left to her family once she dies. But here´s the catch; she lives inside a national park, and age-old conflicts between the family and the National Parks Service may prevent that from happening.

I am a little vague on Ted Turner’s acquisition of the rights to just about every worthwhile movie ever made, but with TCM, he is putting them to good — even ingenious — use. The films

Franc Cano, 27, and Steven Dean Gordon, 45, had been required to wear the devices after serving time in prison for sexually assaulting a child under the age of 14. Police on Monday also said that they are now “confident” that there is a fifth victim -- and perhaps more -- in a string of slayings that has been tied to a pair of registered sex offenders.

Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.

The most decadent Beltway publication yet conceived, Washingtonian, has outdone itself with its latest celebration of what life is like inside the city fueled by your forcibly confiscated money. The publication recently ran with a profile of White House Press Sec. Jay Carney‘s wife, ABC News personality and working mom Claire Shipman. Carney’s two beautiful children are also profiled in the piece, but the profile itself is largely irrelevant. What is worthy of dissection are the three featured images that add value to the profile. And by “value,” we mean guffaws galore.

A once-prominent socialite was found guilty Tuesday in the 1996 Tucson car bomb killing of her ex-husband after spending years abroad living a lavish lifestyle across Europe. Pamela Phillips, 56, had pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder. During the trial that began in February, Phillips´ lawyers told jurors their client had nothing to gain from the death of businessman Gary Triano and that she was the victim of overzealous authorities who failed to follow other leads. They said Phillips was already a successful real estate broker with her own money, and suggested that Triano had

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said. (Video) Reid noted that most cattlemen pay their taxes, pay their fees, and follow

Joan Eisenstodt didn´t have a stopwatch when she went to see an ear, nose and throat specialist recently, but she is certain the physician was not in the exam room with her for more than three or four minutes. "He looked up my nose, said it was inflamed, told me to see the nurse for a prescription and was gone," said the 66-year-old Washington, D.C., consultant, who was suffering from an acute sinus infection. When she started protesting the doctor´s choice of medication, "He just cut me off totally," she said. "I´ve never been in and out from a visit faster." These days,

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by

Thirty-eight Republican lawmakers, including such unlikely bedfellows as John McCain of Arizona and Ted Cruz of Texas, have joined to support a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Affordable Care Act and accusing the president of repeatedly ignoring the law he signed for political reasons. The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief
