Skip to comments.Brokaw: Botched Obamacare Rollout A "Low Point" For Obama, "Inexplicable" (video)
Posted on 11/17/2013 3:29:50 PM PST by i88schwartz
TOM BROKAW: Well, there have been several low points, but this is certainly a low point at a critical time, coming into the 2014 elections, and a lot of Democrats beginning to bail on the idea of Obamacare. What was striking to me about that statement, "We should have been aware." Advertise
I would think, given the importance of Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act, eight months ago the president would have started every meeting with, "How are we doing? Is that going to be ready? That's going to be our big play for the second term," and demanding from Kathy Sebelius and other people who are involved in it that they were ready. And sending people over there to take a look at the rollout. That it suddenly landed the way that it did, in utter chaos, and it's not going to be an easy fix, is just inexplicable.

Cheer up Tommy! It was a high point for America and Freedom!
They believe they are the smartest people in the world, how could anything possibly go wrong?
The explaination is quite simple -
He is incompetant and lazy.
You can put lipstick on a pig and in the end...well...
As much as I would like to kick OBONGO in his A$$,I’m afraid that(in the process of doing so)I would BREAK Tommy’s NOSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In O’s choice of programmers, you don’t smell corruption?
That aside (the press remains as incurious as ever) whether the website works or doesn’t work is the least of it. As it is, website problems mask the underlying reality which is that O’s signature power grab is a wrecking ball.
“Cheer up Tommy! It was a high point for America and Freedom!”
I am sure it has been quite a shock for Tommy Brokejaw.
Not to mention “unexpected”, hey Tom?
Hi did ask many times, “How are we doing”?
Of course he was referring to his golf game.
It was Tom and Charlie Rose who famously mused they didn’t really know much about Barack Obama. Well, Tom, now you know.
Again Main Stream Media looking at things with the Eyes that Obamacare was meant to Succeed.. It was not meant to do so. Use this filter and all makes much more sense.
Actually, Tom, I would have thought that you journalists would have questioned the administration to determine if Obamacare was on schedule and whether there were any problems facing a smooth implementation. As it turns out, Tom, you were just another one of the strap-hanging groupies cheering on the self-styled dictator.
it is NOT the “roll out” - how the “roll out” has had its “roll out” problems - that is the issue
the issue is Obamacare in:
(a) the mandates that tell the nation how MUCH insurance THEY MUST HAVE,
(b) how (a) drives:
(1) “sticker shock” on the premiums on the plans the exchanges are permitted to offer,
(2) “sticker shock” on what an existing plan’s premium is jumping up to,
(3) cancellations for plans that cannot be grandfathered, forever, as-is, and mist be transformed to meet the high-coverage demands and consequential higher premiums MANDATED in Obamacare,
(4) “sticker shock” on what alternative plans the insurers are allowed to offer to replace “non-conforming” plans they must cancel
(c) the worst mandate of all that YOU are not LEGALLY permitted to escape from Obamacare without paying a penalty every year you stay off of the Obamacare health insurance plantation.
Hey Tom, I contend Zero was too bust because he was meeting so often with the IRS commissioner and Lois Lerner to discuss their targeting of Tea Party groups...
It’s going just as Obama planned.
The blame will go on the “greedy” hospitals, “ Insurance companies” , “big Pharma” , Republicans, “Capitalism because it has failed” , “ Tea partiers”, “the Rich”, . Etc Etc. .
Destruction of the current system needs to happen before the
Government must really step in and “save us”.
Its just going a bit slower than the “Manchurian” had hoped.
It’s all about Obama.
It’s not About The USA. Turn on the news. Its al about Obama.
The One who shall never be vetted.
The one who needs to be impeached.
The failure belongs to the opposition.
