Humiliation: Design firm yanks Healthcare.gov credit from its website
Hot Air ^ | October 17, 2013 | Allahpundit

Posted on 10/17/2013 3:58:55 PM PDT by Hotlanta Mike

A fitting tribute to Obama and Sebelius, who helped wreck the Healthcare.gov site because hiding stuff was more important to them than getting it to work properly.

Between this and the devastating USA Today piece calling for “total overhaul,” the official Hot Air pool on when O will announce he’s delaying ObamaCare is open for business. Having hundreds of thousands of people tearing their hair out in frustration at using his crappy site won’t shame him into pulling the plug, but the political embarrassment of his allies starting to back away from his big “achievement” might.

Haha.

Pundits say the shutdown antics distracted from the disastrous rollout. HELLO, the trainwreck continues!

I can understand any company involved with Obamacare wanting to
hide. But what about a refund to the American taxpayer for this farce
by these crony companies?

He would have been smart to agree with the Republicans and let them set it back a year, or even 6 months but he wanted to act like an azzhole and not negotiate. He could have come out of that smelling like a rose.

Now if he sets it back he will really look like the butt head he is.

Six hundred million should get you a great site, surely amazon and google didn’t pay as much to get theirs going?

Amazon and Google didn’t have to pay off cronies of the Chicago Mob / Baraqqi Regime on the way, LOL.

Nov 27, the day before Thanksgiving. That’s when he will postpone Obamacare. No one will be paying attention.

He can't delay it at this point. Insurers have already sent out letters all over the country telling their customers that their policies have been canceled thanks to Obamacare. For many of these cases, the insurer has finally gained a legal opportunity to drop high-risk patients from their plans. There is no way they are going to reverse these changes without a substantial legal fight.

Obama delaying Obamacare will be even a bigger political disaster than keeping it on schedule. Many Americans will find themselves without insurance on January 1 with no exchanges available for them. Not only will they not have been able to keep the insurance they had, but they won't be able to get any new insurance.

The narcissist-in-chief will NEVER delay it. It would be an admission of failure.

How soft we have become.

In Stalin’s day, when there was an epic failure, he would shoot the people managing the program and install new managers, who would then just produce false success numbers in order to not get shot themselves.

That’s why the joke is on us. ObamaCare was passed in part because even Republicans like the sweet smell of taxpayer moola. They figured they’d get three years of non-refundable tax dollars to refill the coffers and then make a weak effort at derailing/delaying it. Even if the thing collapses under it’s own weight tomorrow, nothing is coming back to the folks that paid in.

I’m concerned. /s How are 15 MILLION new American citizens here illegally from Mexico supposed to register to vote if Healthcare.gov isn’t working properly? On second thought, the voter registration function probably works just fine.

I'm one of those persons.

Hard to know what's going to happen, but no way I'm going to subject myself to the exchanges now.

There may be tremendous pressure on insurers to delay their policy cancellations because there's no way the exchanges are going to be ready to process millions of applicants by Jan. 1.

The low information voters think that the website isn’t working because of the government shutdown. No, really, I’m not kidding.

The Mahdi did the shutdown to preserve MahdiCare (it’s proper name since he is the Mahdi). No matter how inept the Pubbies are, it’s doubtful that he’ll be able to duck responsibility for the fact that his pure, spiteful intransigence is what brought this horror to our door steps.

The failure GOP's shutdown of the government to stop Obamacare is the BEST possible outcome for them ...

1. On Jan. 1st, there ain't gonna be NEAR the 7 million YOUNG people signed up that they need to fund the program.

2. The web site MIGHT not even be operational by Dec. 15th, so those people being dropped by insurance companies as of Jan. 1st won't have any insurance.

3. Companies are going to drop their healthcare plans for their employees, forcing them on to the government plans or to buy their own insurance - but the employees may not be able to sign up, if #2 [above] is true.

4. People who currently buy their own private insurance are going to see their premiums double or triple - and their deductable rise at about the same percentage.

5. People who DO get insurance are THEN going to find that they can't use their own doctor AND that their treatment facilities may be 50 miles away.

6. Companies are going to shed workers to get below the 50-employee limit, and those that remain are going to 29 hours per week [to get under the full-time status limit] - resulting in lost jobs and lower paychecks.

*****

When this happens, all the GOP will have to say to the American Public is:

"We tried to kill Obamacare and the government shutdown was the ONLY tool we had to try and repeal it. WE lost - which means YOU lost, and now you know it. If you're going to blame anyone - blame the DEMS"
