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.

How many are pregnant? How many will have heart attacks or strokes? How many will have a child get injured and need medical attention? Their insurance coverage is gone.

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.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

Sheesh! Talk about a complete ingrate... Many people suspect that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) instigated an over the top paramilitary confrontation with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy at the behest of Senator Harry Reid especially since the new BLM director, Neil Kornze, was an aide to Reid. So how does Harry´s son, Rory Reid, thank the BLM rangers for putting their lives at risk over desert tortoises that are being euthanized by the Feds? Why, he slams them as "losers" on Las Vegas television station KSNV where Rory serves as a commentator from the left. You can see Reid in

After his Masters victory, pro golfer Bubba Watson celebrated with his family at a Waffle House. Pictures tweeted from there went viral. Waffle House appreciated the appreciation. What´s not to like about this great story? Apparently some self-appointed nanny state-loving guardians of nutrition like Katherine Tallmadge believe that Watson set a bad example for Americans by eating there. Oh, and with her powers of telepathy, she just knows that Watson´s a complete phony about what he really eats. She went after Watson on one of Neil Cavuto´s Fox programs yesterday, and in doing so caught talk show host Rush Limbaugh´s

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it."

Without mentioning reports that the man accused of shooting up a Jewish Community Center over the weekend was apparently a fan of the left´s Max Blumenthal, CNN National Security Analyst Peter Bergen exploited the murders to claim the American Right is more deadly than jihadists. In fact, since 9/11 extremists affiliated with a variety of far-right wing ideologies, including white supremacists, anti-abortion extremists and anti-government militants, have killed more people in the United States than have extremists motivated by al Qaeda´s ideology.

It’s not every day that Bill O’Reilly accuses someone else of expressing “right-wing paranoia,” but that’s what happened Tuesday night when he faced off with Fox News contributor Monica Crowley over a proposed solution to the controversy over voter ID laws. O’Reilly began his show by giving a soft endorsement to an idea put forward by former President Bill Clinton that would add photos to social security cards, which American citizens are already required to have in their possession. “I am all for combating voter fraud by using voter I.D.,” Crowley told O’Reilly. “My issue with the social security card in particular

Sylvia Mathews Burwell, President Obama’s nominee to lead the country’s health care overhaul, remains entangled in a lawsuit brought by shareholders of MetLife accusing her of misleading investors as a director of one of the country’s biggest insurance companies. The federal lawsuit, filed in New York, says the company used a Social Security death index to stop making payments when beneficiaries died, but the company wasn’t as diligent about using the database to track deaths of its policyholders, which triggers payouts, the lawsuit said. Last year, a judge refused to toss a federal lawsuit against the company, including claims against Ms. Burwell

A Republican congressman has introduced a bill that would stop government paychecks for officials who have been found in contempt of Congress — a move that seems designed in the short term to go after Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. Mr. Holder has refused to cooperate with the House GOP’s probe into the Fast & Furious gun-walking operation, and the House has voted to find him in contempt. Mr. Holder is challenging that vote in court. Rep. Blake Farenthold, a Texas Republican who publicly excoriated Mr. Holder at a hearing last week, introduced the legislation just before Congress went on vacation,

The White House on Tuesday downplayed the controversy over media access to President Obama, who will hold a moment of silence to mark the Boston Marathon bombing anniversary in the Oval Office without the press. The president and aides will observe the anniversary of the deadly attack behind closed doors at 2:29 p.m., exactly one year after two pressure cookers packed with shrapnel detonated near the finish line of the raise. “The president´s going to have a moment of silence in the Oval Office.

Fellela pled guilty to five counts on charges of aggravated identity theft, credit card fraud, Social Security fraud and theft of government funds. This was not Fellela’s first brush with the law.

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no."

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth.

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level.
