If this is any indication then Oblamercare is headed for certain failure. One big problem the liberal loons who pushed this debacle fail to realize is that MOST Americans do NOT want this monstrosity and there are many who could care less about "registering" etc. If the brain trust that started down this dead end road had only made it optional then it may have seen some success already.

"The Daily Mail reported that Twitter exploded on Thursday after it was revealed that 202,586 individuals had successfully signed up for the Mars One colony project to populate the red planet as soon as the technology becomes available. By comparison, the analytics firm Compete.com found that only 36,000 have registered for Obamacare via the official government site, Healthcare.gov."

He He That just goes to show you that there are more idiots in the world than there are people that are trying to obey the law.

Scientists say that the trip alone will probably kill the travelers through radiation. (Yeah, I know, you said "technologically becomes available"... but, that doesn't equate to safe.)

Are people so vain as to die just to get into some record that they were the first to do something? Well.... yeah.

Ah yes, just another example of the "most transparent administration". What a FARCE this administration has proven to be, much as expected back in 2008. She found time to posture on the Jon Stewart show but flicked her finger at Congress. The incompetent slob doesn't want her many failures rolling out Oblamercare to become public knowledge.

Oblamers big speech today on OblamerCare sounded more like an infomercial according to one pundit in the Washington Post. He went on to sum it up with a very appropriate Reaganism - if you are explaining you are losing. Oblamer has been trying to sell/explain this monstrosity for over 3 years and the majority STILL aren't buying his lies. What was that definition of insanity again?

It seems Oblamercare is off to a really rocky start. The biggest problem is not the clunky computer infrastructure or the likelihood that millions of lines of code will need to be rewritten, no the real problem is all the assumptions made by the BHO healthcare trauma team when writing this monstrosity about how the cost of the program will be met. To say they were blind to reality is an understatement of epic proportions. BHO himself has already delayed select portions of the program (of course not those that apply to average citizens) because it was obvious the law was FLAWED. A few of the latest  articles from both sides of the political spectrum:

Obamacare is in deeper trouble than Obama admits
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/right-turn/wp/2013/10/21/obamacare-is-in-deeper-trouble-than-obama-admits/

The overhaul of the broken ObamaCare website could be a massive undertaking, with one specialist reportedly saying 5 million lines of code may have to be rewritten and indications that the newly hired tech team may need weeks to repair the system.

MANY can't get on the website and those that have are getting WRONG information...Government run at its best!...When reporter asked Jay Carney if those that can't get onto the site by no fault of there own....will they be penalized?....Carney refused or could not provide and answer....Sebelius will be heading to the Hill for questioning but this will be turned into more mean ole republicans against [name] cowh healthcare rather than this is broken and should not even be considered to be used until it works...that's just the technology side not even addressing the financial and medical impact...but hey why worry the sheep will follow off the cliff....

Didn't take long for BHOs professional apologists to attempt to absolve him of any knowledge of the many problems associated with the rollout of Oblamercare. Just like everything else - he didn't know anything! Pitiful.

More good news for Sebelius - this is just another example of misguided government interference:


Health law’s insurance co-ops are in danger
"The network of nonprofits was created to foster competition among plans and lower insurance costs, and their failure could cost taxpayers $1 billion."

   This is close to home...two other headlines:.....300,000 in Florida lose healthplans.....Feds instruct Blue Cross/Blue Shield not to give sign-up numbers....Didn't the cowh/democrats use commercials showing republicans throwing the elderly off the cliff?....Guess there was some truth in that commercial but they got the villan wrong....

So now Oblamer is using the Oblamercare rollout fiasco to raise money for his PAC (or whatever you want to call it) Organizing for Action. As if Sebelius hasn't already spent millions trying to sell this not to mention the mega millions Oblamer has spent jetting around blowing smoke and flashing his mirrors into peoples eyes. How low can you go Oblamer?

"The troubled HealthCare.gov website may be having problems pulling in applicants for ObamaCare, but that's not stopping President Obama's political arm from pulling in cash off the dysfunctional site.

Through his political group Organizing for Action, Obama sent a videotaped message to supporters in an email Tuesday evening.

In the video, the president said "the website has not worked as smoothly as it was supposed to," but "we're gonna get it fixed." As he's said before, the president added: "The Affordable Care Act is much more than a website."

The email, though, also appealed for donations, saying "the other side will spend millions to maintain the status quo."

Read where SEVERAL Senate Dems that are up for re-election are strongly urging the cowh to delay the mandate portion and extend the sign up period with no penalties...wonder why if this is such a great accomplishment that those up for re-election would be proud to go home and explain/campaign on it's merits?....In an interview Sebelius was questioned and said she had gone on the website...browsed around and created an acount....when asked if she had attempted or registered she said...No I've got health insurance....Arrogance on display and another individual that isn't being held to the law of the land that most others are being forced to follow....HOPE that all congressional candidates have to explain why they don't have to follow the same law as regular citizens and ask if they support this philosophy and then maybe the voters will make a CHANGE.....well one can dream....

Sebelius, when asked today about requests for her to be fired or step down, told reporters that she doesn't work for those who want her fired.

Who the hell does she work for???

Heard her yesterday and was dumbfounded by her arrogance.  The entire thing is being blamed on the Republican controlled house?  Geez.  Passing the buck doesn't really describe this administration.

Also was talking with a man at work who's wife is a Dr. and has been told by other Dr.'s in Ft. Walton that they can no longer be "providers" of various insurance plans.  That's something I haven't seen a lot of press on.  He said there are no standards for the revocation and NO appeal process, whatsoever.

Is this another method for forcing Dr.'s into accepting only Obamacare subscribers?

I can't imagine any other reason for it.

Unbelievable.  Love the dictatorship of our times.Evil or Very Mad

And there are some that still support this fiasco and seem content to allow rights/choices to be taken away by the government....Just saw all those commercials featuring the cowh and other democrat leaders and all the promises they said would happen under this [name] cowh healthcare...well it's not cheaper...some (many) cannot keep their current doctor and he said if you want to keep your current insirance you can...then why the mandate and punitive fines?....Also this is going to tick off the large group that supported him...the younger voters that aren't interested in healthcare at their ages and paying for folks that need it....In another interview prior to her most arrogant statement...Ms Sebelius was asked if she'd been to the website...she answered she had and looked around and created an account....Did you register?...."No I already have healthcare"....A better healthcare given to those that created this mess in the first place and we the middle working class are paying for them to not be under the law of the land...maybe since she doesn't work for us she shouldn't be paid by us....

I doubt Sebelius is a website designer so I doubt she's completely responsible for the problem.The problem seems to stem from systems overload and that's because so many Americans are so desperate for affordable healthcare that they're all trying to get onto the website at once.
All the overload proves is that millions of Americans want to get into Obamacare.


Once the glitches are taken care of and once millions of Americans are getting affordable care, the Republican party will have no issue to run on. It will happen- it's just a matter of time.

With constant change orders, it was difficult to program the website, but for $300 MILLION, you would think the damn website would work!

SOMEBODY made some real money on that programming.

She works for a democratic administration and does not have to answer to the general public. She certainly doesn't have to answer to the Republican party who didn't want Obamacare anyway. There are a lot of public figures I'd like to see fired, but I don't sign the paychecks so I don't get to do the firing.

As for the glitches in Obamacare's computers, you Republicans should be happy about it. It puts the administration in a bad light. You didn't want it to succeed and it's having problems.
Your problem is that you know the problems will be handled one day and Americans will realize it's a success before the next general election.

The website experts testified that they warned against the problems and glitches...they were told to roll out in weeks rather than the months that were needed...The glitches are the least of the problems the entire package is a mess from the website to what was promised and what it actually delivers...Lastly...this isn't just republicans that are moving away from this mess there are plenty of democrats...including one of the co-authors (Bacus D-Montana) that called this [name] cowh healthcare a "Trainwreck"....So prior to somehow attempting to blame the republicans this was a total democrat show and they own this mess...Like Pelosi said...Lets just pass this then we'll see what's inside....But when you're a supporter of this administration it would be difficult to identify the arrogance of Sebelius because it's been on display by so many others...

Of course it's easy for progressives to ignore the hard issues like cost, extraordinary government intrusion, a bloated IRS watchdog agency, forcing people who have no interest in health insurance (but we are the government - we KNOW what's best for you) to purchase or face penalties, the rush to medicare/medicaid by people who don't want to pay anything or who just don't understand the extreme complexities of this massive program (thus complicating the overall cost of ACA), and the fact that historically the federal government has failed miserably in healthcare administration. Don't believe that? Take a hard, objective look at the debacle called the Veterans Administration. The country needs access to affordable healthcare and the whole system needs reformed. It's apparent to honest observers that the ACA is not the answer. I don't really believe a majority of folks want the program to fail given the millions and millions of dollars already wasted - I do believe it will probably collapse under it's own weight when States start to feel the cost impact to already shaky budgets and fight back against increasingly oppressive federal mandates. Progressives will ignore that too just like they have the fact BHO "didn't know" about any problems. Hmmmm, that's catchy - "BHO didn't know". The new White House mantra.
