Obamacare Site Going Down for Maintenance Ahead of Deadline
CNN ^ | Friday, November 29, 2013 | Ashley Killough

Posted on 11/29/2013 4:39:37 PM PST by kristinn

HealthCare.gov, the problem-plagued federal online site for signing up for insurance under Obamacare, will go down for extended maintenance on Friday night and overnight ahead of Saturday's deadline to have it working for most people, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said.

The overnight maintenance overnight is set to last from 9 p.m. ET Friday until 8 a.m. ET Saturday.

It's not the first time the website has gone done; the administration has frequently done regular weekend maintenance, usually on Sunday mornings from 1 a.m ET to 5 a.m. ET.

During the maintenance checks, the website's application and enrollment system are unavailable, official say. But one section of the website that verifies income and citizenship information, known as the Data Services Hub, will function as normal, according to officials.

The administration is racing towards Saturday's self-imposed deadline....

OBAMA CALLS Mrs O: "Before she pocketed some of the billion dollars,
your pal shoulda told us they didn't teach web site construction at Princeton."

SECY SIBELIUS TO OBAMA: "While you're on your brand new brick
phone, Mr President, get a few more cases of these cute floppy disks
Mrs O's Princeton classmate provided."

==============================================

During the web site crisis, Mrs O displayed her usual “tolerance and compassion” (sob). She ordered the WH kitchen to provide the hardworking fix-it team with glass carafes of Chock-ful-of-Nuts coffee heated on bunsen burners, cans of evaporated milk, packets of aspartame, and fresh-made donuts fried in olestra.

=======================================================

healthcare.gov failures include: billion dollar pay
checks to cronies, insiders, and Mrs O's Princeton classmate.......

Toni Townes-Whitley, Senior Vice President at "CGI Federal" for
Civilian Agency programs, healthcare.gov designers
is Princeton Class of
1985---same dumbed-down class as Michelle Obama. Both are members of
the racial separatist organization----Association of Black Princeton Alumni.

" At Princeton, Michele and I took intellectually challenging courses like
Black Is Beautiful, How To Intimidate Employers with The Civil Rights Act,
Getting Ahead Using Your Skin Color, with graduate studies in Pay-Me-I'm-
A-Victim methodologies.

Here is what they are looking at....

LONDON, June 21, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - An eminent British doctor told a meeting of the Royal Society of Medicine in London that every year 130,000 elderly patients that die while under the care of the National Health Service (NHS) have been effectively euthanized by being put on the controversial Liverpool Care Pathway (LCP), a protocol for care of the terminally ill that he described as a “death pathway.”

Nerd.....if we scale that up that gives us about 750,000 euthanizing events a year in the USA.

Obama.....sounds good ....

Sibelius......I'll get right on it.

Obama.....and call it the "ObamaCare Pathway."

It will come down, then come back up with vastly fewer features. At this point, you improve things by cutting, not adding.

Guarantee they will put lipstick on the O-Care website pig and call it beautiful regardless if it crashes every 10 minutes. The MSM pimps and whores will be cheering and proclaiming the success of the new improved website as it almost enrolls one sucker before it crashes.

SELECTED DEMOCRAT QUOTES:
FROM THE UNEXPURGATED PAGES OF THE CONGRESSIONAL RECORD
:

<><> Nancy Pelosi (Dimwit-Calif) famously egged-on Congress to pass Obamacare "so we could see what’s in it.”

<><> Sen Mary Landrieu (Dimwit-LA) in the well of the Senate speaking to voters about their "sub-standard" health plans: "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan."

<><> Sen. Dianne Feinstein (Dimwit-Calif): “I listened to the president and I believed him when he said,' if you liked your plan, you can keep your plan.' I didn’t realize there were all these codicils attached to it."

<><> Pres Barack Obama (Dimwit-Ill): "we fumbled" the healthcare roll out." (Nominated for Understatement of The Century).

================================================

All those loyal Dimocrats applauding the bill signing, who "stood tall" for Obamacare and sold their aye votes, also voted for this atrocity which Obama wrote into the healthcare bill:

DIMCRATS VOTED EN MASSSE FOR THIS

IPAB is an Obama-created fifth branch of govt. government agency (as the con artist turned EPA, the IRS, the FCC, HSS, etc. into the fourth branches of govt).

IPAB (Independent Payment Advisory Board) is the first agency of the “fifth branch” of govt.....composed of hand- picked unelected members appointed by Obama:

1) It will make all important health care decisions by authorizing payment or not.
2) It is not funded by Congress and cannot have its budget reviewed or changed.
3) Its membership cannot be changed by future Presidents,
4) It cannot be repealed by Congress, except for a six month window in 2017.
5) Its decisions are not subject to judicial review.
6) It is not authorized by the Constitution, and is therefore immune to Constitutional processes.

============================================== Obamacare con artists eliminated the ASSET TEST, (which would have prevented those with assets to even be considered for Medicaid coverage). Every person herded onto Medicaid signed away their entire estate to the govt. Heirs get nothing---everything goes to the state to re-coup the expenses incurred under Medicaid. The Obama criminals duped people into a reverse mortgage scheme......

Here's how it works.

The Obama con artists herded seniors WITH ASSETS onto Medicaid---a program specifically structured for the poor.

Herding sickly elderly with assets into Medicaid has ominous consequences intriguing to sap-happy leftists. B/c assets, perhaps a home owned free and clear, securities, annuities, investment property, can be seized to pay for govt treatment.

Thus intergenerational transfers of wealth (a longtime liberal/progressive bugaboo)----are decimated. Can you say redistribution of wealth?

=================================================

Boobamba's got plans.....secret, nefarious plans for grampa/ma duped into signing up for Medicare/Aid. The BOOB can't get 'em to sign up on the flopola healthcare.guv website---so he's throwing some 400,000 onto MEDICAID------and all the costs of medical care will be charged back.

How can he do that? By slapping federal and state LIENS against signers' homes, and other assets.......the Obamacare con artists eliminated the ASSET TEST, (which would have prevented those with assets to even be considered for Medicaid coverage).

So those who now think, "Golly gee, my government loves me, Obama says I qualify for subsidized Medicaid care, I'll be well- taken care of"---have been suckered into a REVERSE ASSET LIQUIDATION FEDERAL MONEY GRAB.

And, once in the hands of the Obama criminal hordes, all that money is untraceable.>

Constant “theater”.

They WANT it to f**k-up—they can then herd idiots into coverage that gives gubmint power over your life.

But, the idiot-base supporters of Benghazi-Barry (aka Bath-House Barry) and Iranian born Val Jarrette will continue to think gubmint wants to “help” them and is doing everything in their power to make this work.

Our side should not focus on the website...because sooner or later it WILL be “fixed”. We must focus on the millions of Americans who have lost their plans, and on the pricing shell games played by the website, “working” or not.

Agreed.

Regardless of political party, anything that the US Federal Government turns into a Law or a Regulation has been touched by the FEDERAL FECAL FINGER.

RINOcare Socialized Health Insurance Tax, or RSHIT, will be just as big a failure as Obamacare Socialized Health Insurance Tax, or OSHIT.

Don’t you get it? It doesn’t matter if it works 10 times worse than it does now. It will be praised as the greatest comeback in American history by the fawning Obama/Clinton media. And most Americans will agree. Seems impossible, but I really think it’s so.

Wall-to-wall anecdotal stories of the unbelievable success by Obama will fill every mainstream media outlet in America. Triumphant and condescending speeches will be made by Dear Leader, as he is roundly adored.

You have to know that. For me, I just hope enough American sleepers wake up and realize that our country will slip away if these rampant, repulsive bunch of liberals aren’t tossed the hell out soon.

Assume that the original site required ten parts to accomplish what people expected, and what the scammers promised.
They crippled or removed eight of the necessary interconnected "parts", and hope no one will notice that a lot more people can log on, but most of its useful essential features have been simply left out.

The parts that required competent software managers and programmers to accomplish; 20% of the total web site, but 80% of the expected functionality missing.
