Patience, Obamacare will work
CNN, by Sally Kohn

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 10/25/2013 6:01:29 PM

You know what´s relatively easy? Fixing a website. You know what´s really hard? Ensuring access to affordable, quality health insurance for every single American and improving our broken health care system in the process. In the back-and-forth about the Obamacare exchange websites, let´s not lose sight of the ultimate goal of health care reform -- a goal that, even with the exchanges problems, we are steadily achieving. Less than 17 days into the signup period, the State of Oregon had already enrolled 56,000 people under the Medicaid expansion in Obamacare -- and reduced the state´s percentage of uninsured by 10%. In

Comments:
Ahh yes, the insufferable, brainwashed leftist Kohn rears her ugly head. At least she hasn´t been on Fox lately. I can´t even look at her. She states: "three years ago, our health care costs were skyrocketing, tens of millions of Americans lacked health insurance and 14,000 more were losing their coverage every day" and is thankful we have a law that fixed that??? I guess she´s been under a rock and hasn´t seen the exorbitant rise in costs and hundreds of thousands in cancellations. What an idiot.

Web sites can be fixed. Stupidity can´t. Once The Unaffordable No HealthKKKare Edict from ØDumbø is shoved down our throats, next up is illegal immigrants so the demoncraps can never lose another election, universal college education so libs can pollute the minds of the yuths, and the requirement that the Constitution be replaced with Sharia Law. Hope there´s enough stone left on Mount Rushmore for Zippy´s Ears and Teleprompter One.

Whenever I see her face I change the channel or at least mute the tv. She is not only stupid when she talks she is stupid in print too. The only benefit I have seen is losing my ins. and finding out obamacare premiums and deductibles are much higher. But, damn, I´m 62 and I will be loving those birth control and ob benefits. And the rehab benefits I get to pay for even though I don´t drink or do drugs. How silly of me to think I should be able to pick what is important to my own health. Yeah, sally, it´s a sweet ride. I will not sign up for this barf I think a lot of people will be with me. What a doofus.

I believe she´s correct.

ObamaScare WILL work the way it´s designed to - to track our every move, our every meal, our BMI, all our prescriptions (what, how many and how often), and be right there with us next time we´re in the doctor´s exam room.

Additionally, when we file our 1040´s, it´ll be right there again, disguised as the IRS, siphoning our money of our account to pay for itself.

I miss America. But, like Glenn Beck said this morning, try not to look at this as the end of America..... it really just could be the beginning of a REBORN America....

I´m holding on to that.

At least with Kirsten Powers you know that there is an analytical brain which will decide which side she takes depending on the facts ... you may not agree with her but at least there is reasonable logic driving her opinions most of the time.
With the drone Sally Kohn, talking points are hard-wired into her skull, and she NEVER deviates from knee-JERK defense of the indefensible. Kohn is the stereotypic Stepford liberal, ready to CRUSH freedom "for the greater good" of a utopian dream the likes of which has sacrificed millions of lives for an elite which knows what´s best for us, and will not be denied of their control.

I think there are two problems that the fed healthcare Web site faces.

The first is that the site is making way too many remote procedure calls (RPC). The Internet is comprised of many computers all connected, and what appears on a single Web page and what happens to data entered into a form can actually use many different computers "under the covers". When a Web site brings in or sends out data to a remote other server, that´s what we call a RPC.

I´m sure that the site is sending data to a bunch of legacy federal computer systems, like to HHS, IRS, NSA, etc. Those systems do what they do and are not going to change very quickly, if at all. This is why simply adding more computing resources to the healthcare site itself will not produce a quick and easy fix. The problem is that the interaction with those remote other sites takes a lot of time, and there are enough to choke the throughput of the overall system.

The second problem is that there has been and continues to be dramatic "feature creep". This would include requirements that aren´t even defined yet, leaving the system woefully inappropriate for whatever is intended. This is usually caused by too many chefs, especially chefs who are computer fools with great initiative.

Fixing a website is easy? Obviously Sally knows nothing about IT. They tried to squeeze 5 years of development into 2 years, without anyone knowing the specifics about what they were developing. I´d be surprised if the website is running as it should by this time next year.

The author is a liberal community organizer like BO and just as delusional. She knows nothing about the technical challenges for THIS website and yet claims a bunch of college kids hyped up on caffeine will fix it up in a jiffy. On the other hand we have respected developers in the IT world saying the site is horribly designed and badly broken. Who do you think we should believe.

To a liberal, the end goal is everything. They want universal and government paid healthcare. This brief stop that uses private insurers will be swept away before too long. So ANYTHING that happens along the way to that goal is OK. They are reaching for the brass ring and it doesn´t matter that the merry-go-round is on fire.

She also quotes other liberals that know as little about the real situation as Sally does about IT development. No fact checks and soon will be proven completely false but Sally will be on to other people to quote their drivel. You just keep on moving to the next lie because you are heading for that shiny ring.

Meanwhile the rest of us get screwed.

The Justice Department moved Wednesday to significantly expand the number of people eligible for clemency, issuing new guidelines allowing certain prisoners who already have served at least 10 years behind bars to apply for release. The initiative is part of a broader Obama administration effort to ease sentences for nonviolent drug offenders. Deputy Attorney General James Cole outlined the changes, which include six separate criteria inmates must meet to be eligible, on Wednesday morning. Among the requirements is that inmates must have served at least 10 years of their federal sentence and not have a "significant criminal history." They must

The column I wrote last week, it turns out, has created somewhat of a storm. This is due to one thing only: Rush Limbaugh read it aloud on his radio program. (Start reading in the middle from where it says “BREAK TRANSCRIPT.”) That one decision by Rush led all of our mutual enemies to go viral, sending numerous Tweets and Facebook posts attacking Rush and me for supposedly arguing that the anti-Semitic neo-Nazi Glenn Miller acted because of Max Blumenthal. Of course, as I wrote last week in an addendum, this was not the point I was making. I wrote the following, and repeat it once again:

Iran is insisting that the United States accept its decision to appoint a former terrorist as it representative to the United Nations, which held a closed-door meeting on Tuesday to address Tehran’s concerns over the matter. President Barack Obama signed into law last week a widely supported bill preventing countries from appointing terrorists as their U.N. ambassadors. The bill came in response to Iran’s selection of Hamid Aboutalebi as its next envoy to the United Nations. The pick drew outrage on Capitol Hill and elsewhere after Aboutalibi was identified as having played a key role in the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis,

But Hamblin really let loose when he insisted that despite Dr. Carson´s surgical talent, his opposition to Obamacare is based on "sentiment," not a "rational pespective. His talent "does not imply an elevated or even rational perspective on health-care policy." Carson speaks from a unique position of stature

Obama’s Malaysia Trip

When President Obama becomes the first U.S. president to visit Malaysia in almost half a century, he will visit a prominent mosque on Sunday – but not a church, in a country where relations between the Muslim establishment and minority Christians have not always been smooth. Also, Obama’s itinerary includes a meeting with “Malaysian civil society leaders,” but according to the White House he will not meet with Anwar Ibrahim, the veteran opposition leader who since the late 1990s has been embroiled in a legal battle with the government widely viewed as a politically motivated harassment campaign.

On Monday, The Washington Post announced it had hired Philip Bump, a journalist currently at Atlantic magazine’s The Wire, to cover politics for their daily blog The Fix. The move set off a chain of congratulations from across the political press corps. But lost in the media love fest was Bump’s partisan past — a history left unspoken in either the Post’s official announcement or any of the Twitter applause. Not only does Bump’s archive at The Wire betray a palpable bias in favor of progressivism; his career as a journalist began when he headed a vicious pro-labor blog which published the names and addresses of opponents later targeted by

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall.

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.

Former Sen.

"A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

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.

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

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

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

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.

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

Today is Earth Day. Fox News’ The Five opened its show with a nearly 15 minute segment titled “Earth Day Hysteria.” The goal appeared to be to prove that scientists’ warnings about climate change are overblown and should be ignored if not outright mocked and co-host Eric Bolling was the ringleader of the effort. But he found an adversary in Bob Beckel, who challenged the status quo by presenting actual data on the rise of CO2 levels from NASA, of all places. But before Beckel got to his chart, Bolling took some time to “praise” President Barack Obama for what
