“Mr. Obama, You Use Your Tongue Prettier Than A Twenty Dollar Whore”
I wish I could say that I was shocked that after about two years and billions of dollars, the clowns in charge of the healthcare implementation roll-out created non-functional websites that simply did not work.
But, just as everything else the Obama administration has brought us, amateurs ruled the day; and the excuses on the Sunday morning shows ranged from “it’s too successful” to “there’s plenty of time to get it right”.
If you are going to require that everybody in the United States buy themselves or make their boss buy them health insurance, at the very least, you should be able to tell people what the hell it’s going to cost them and how they can sign up.
Barack Obama, for his part, compared it to the roll-out of an iPhone. Only he’s wrong. Nobody is forcing anybody to buy an iPhone.
It was obvious—even to our clownish President—that they weren’t ready to enforce the large employer mandate, so they unilaterally delayed that for a year.
But the individual mandate was more political.
So Obama shut down the government over not allowing a delay of that.
After all that intransigence, you would think they would be very careful to roll out the individual websites on time, functional, complete, and working well.
This is just another indication this President and his sycophants are so far over their heads that they have no credibility with ANYTHING they do or say. Everybody but the lefties knew that healthcare in America would not be “reformed” by merely forcing the whole nation to buy insurance.
It’s wrongly titled the “AFFORDABLE Care Act.”
And it is most assuredly NOT.
The law simply does nothing to make healthcare more affordable.
The truth is that the biggest blow to be struck for healthcare affordability in the last 20 years was struck by WalMart when it rolled out the $4 generic drug prescription plan. For self-payers like me, the folks in Bentonville and those who immediately jumped on the competitive bandwagon have saved BILLIONS while probably making a lot of money at the same time.
Competition is good, but you’d never know it from looking at what the imbeciles who wrote Obamacare have wrought.
What if the Government stopped setting any floors in what it will pay any provider for anything and administered its basic programs, Medicare and Medicaid as well as the VA, on the strict basis of the lowest bid?
Do you think that would encourage companies like WalMart to build clinics at their Supercenters and compete on the basis of price?
Of course it would.
Which is exactly why the health insurers and the big hospitals whose lawyers helped Nancy Pelosi’s and Harry Reid’s lackeys write this monstrosity wanted nothing to do with such radical ideas.
Why have competition when you can have a monopoly and a nice income stream from the poor taxpayers all at the same time?
And even with all of those advantages legislated in to the deal, these clowns still can’t make a fairly simple group of websites work as advertised.
But we can have the National Park Police threaten to put people in jail because nobody is taking the Obama shutdown seriously.
It reminds me of the scene from “Blazing Saddles” when Slim Pickens tells Harvey Korman, “Gol Darn it Mr. Lamarr. You use your tongue prettier than a twenty dollar whore.”
