Obama: 'No excuse' for health care signup problems
Yahoo! News ^ | 10/21/13 | Julie Pace - ap

Posted on 10/21/2013 9:23:21 AM PDT by NormsRevenge

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama on Monday said there was "no excuse" for the cascade of computer problems that have marred the rollout of key elements in his health care law, but declared he was confident the administration would be able to fix the issues.

"There's no sugarcoating it," Obama said. "Nobody is more frustrated than I am."

The president said his administration was doing "everything we can possibly do" to get the federally run websites up and running. And he guaranteed that everyone who wants to get insurance through the new health care exchanges will be able to.

Obama's event in the White House Rose Garden had the feeling of a health care pep rally, with guests in the Rose Garden applauding as Obama ticked through what the White House sees as benefits of the law. The president was introduced by a woman who had successfully managed to sign up for health insurance through the marketplaces in her home state of Delaware.

The president insisted that his health care law is about more than just a website.

"The essence of the law, the health insurance that's available to people, is working just fine," he said.

So when do the taxpayers file suit against the companies that received millions for programming this failure?

yeah....what’s the problem? All you have to do is to find some kind of number and call them on your ObamaPhone and aks them how you get your free shit.

You’ll find a friendly “NAVIGATOR” on the other end who, although could be a convicted felon or illegal alien or whoever that could steal your identity, will help you find your free shit.

I mean why should you be concerned about your identity...they can’t steal your EBT card, your Section 8 housing, your WICs, your TANF, your SSDI, SSI or your EITC. Why do you have to worry? Just call that number and get more free shit.

Classic Bankster-ese ... the puffed-up-suit is the victim (of his own poor execution of the plan - but “never mind!”).

“Poor Obama.” “Oh, the humanity!”

When the proper action is, stop the disaster cold, in addition to the fact that stopping the disaster cold, is completely within your power.

Obama won’t, because like all liberal egos, he’s an innocent bystander -— there is *NEVER* acceptance of such egos’ responsibilities.

Sometimes there are statements, like today, but not acceptance.

Of course, the big worry is that Mister Obama and his socialized-medicine-peddling-peeps know much less about medicine, ancillary healing arts, pharmacology, hospital management and insurance than they do about (extraordinarily simple, by comparison) website development.

..

Heck,, looking at their record of Fast&Furious, Benghazi, DREAM act, DOMA repeal and successful ObabaCare scotus challenge victory,..

Oh yeah, fixing things is no big deal for this administration.

They have the tools and the media to do it,, again and again. Shame in using them is certainly a non—issue.

Maybe “O” can look at the old Ronco Vegamatic commercials to see how it’s done! :)

BTW Any private ins. company that had a launch as fouled up and full of misrepresentation as “O’Care” would have the Insurance Commission and the AG on their a$# in a second and would be put out of business and fined so fast it would make your head spin!

Why should he be frustrated? He is exempted.

Now, if he had claimed that 'I will not rest until ...' I might have believed him. :)

I can only imagine how far the dogs and family stay away from him lately.

He has been ‘stressed’ for some time.

His basketboat of coalitions he has weaved together covering for his sorry arse is not going to be able to survive many more tsunamis.. and he knows it.. and that more are on the way.

This is the same thing he said with the IRS and spying on the Media scandals.

From the liberal media makers of Many Lies and Emperors' New Clothes, now comes ObamaCare Essence! --- an odious neo-fragrance that that you acquire by standing in long lines, hour after hour ... waiting for what was supposed to be "care" but is now, "merely insurance."

That's the "essence," and it "works."

-------------------------->

Nobody? NOBODY?

Think again, Hussein. You have no clue how many more are as, or more frustrated, than you.

You've got your ObanaDon'tCare and the 'exemptors' got theirs.

And, again, what's the "I" - comparisons always come back to you - me, me, me - I, I, I - myself - myself - myself......

How Americans suffer from you, you, you.

Go away and take your arrogance and psychological pathology with you.

Take the missus with you.

the republicans are the most inept bunch of fools on earth ...more likely they want to keep the ACA so they can tinker with it if they ever get back in charge....

but anyway, why they don’t have 500 people on the capitol steps, RIGHT NOW, with cancellation letters and premium increase notices in hand coming one after another to the microphone ...saying how this law has destroyed their insurance that they liked, made them switch doctors and costs more...it’s just the height of political idiocy that they can organize this and pull it off in an hour, you can’t wait a few days or few weeks ...you have to pile on the pressure before this thing grows....but, they are idiots and don’t know how to use political theatre ..so, they’ll whine about mean old Ted Cruz and work on passing amnesty ..
