Mr. Obama riding a unicorn
Healthcare.gov has never crashed – it’s just slow!!!
During her testimony today, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said, ‘The website never crashed. It is functional, but at a very slow speed and very low reliability.’
As she testified, the website crashed – again. One has to wonder what her definition of a ‘crash’ is.
The site is down:
After Sebelius’ testimony at the congressional hearings in which she took responsibility for the website ‘glitches’, Barack Obama, gave a speech in Massachusetts comparing Obamacare to Romneycare. He did not take responsibility for the failure of the rollout and only said he would make certain that the problems are fixed.
Romneycare had a few ‘glitches’, he said, and it is now widely accepted in Massachusetts just as Obamacare will be. His words echoed those of the Democrats questioning Sebelius today. They blamed Republicans for ‘hyperventilating,’ they blamed contractors and insurance companies, and lauded Obamacare.
Mitt Romney posted the following on his Facebook page:
In the years since the Massachusetts health care law went into effect nothing has changed my view that a plan crafted to fit the unique circumstances of a single state should not be grafted onto the entire country. Beyond that, had President Obama actually learned the lessons of Massachusetts health care, millions of Americans would not lose the insurance they were promised they could keep, millions more would not see their premiums skyrocket, and the installation of the program would not have been a frustrating embarrassment. Health reform is best crafted by states with bipartisan support and input from its employers, as we did, without raising taxes, and by carefully phasing it in to avoid the type of disruptions we are seeing nationally.
Romneycare didn’t have any website problems and Governor Deval Patrick has recently levied huge new taxes to cover the costs of Romneycare.
The far-left in Massachusetts are now pushing for single payer. Bill de Blasio who is running for New York City mayor also wants single payer in New York City. The left won’t stop until they push every government program as far left as possible.
The testimony today and the questioning by Democrats was intended to obfuscate, divert attention, and describe the disastrous rollout problems in euphemistic terms.
