Posted on 12/05/2013 8:59:53 AM PST by The Old Hoosier
A Hill staffer passes along this email from the Senate Disbursing office, noting wryly, If they cannot get this right for friggin Congressional staff, the rest of the country is screwed. ...

The problems are only just beginning. The really big stuff has yet to happen but surely will. :)
When is Eric the Corrupt going to sue Moo and her buddies at CGI for the recovery of $750 million in fraud for a web site that might never work?
This is the dialog box at the top of the page:
Many people who apply will pay lower monthly premiums than those shown here. Households with yearly incomes up to about $46,000 for individuals or $94,000 for a family of four will qualify for lower costs. The prices you see are for people who don't use tobacco. You'll get final quotes for specific plans based on your income and household after you complete a Marketplace application.
Cost based on income, how about cost based on services provided?
That is 100% income redistribution, richer pay more to subsidize the poor.
Sure, Amazon wait time on Cyber-Monday was a milli-second slower than usual and the queue for full second delays did not even kick in.
Oh, yeah. When companies and public institutions that thought they were covered find out that their group plans are going to be canceled, there'll be hell to pay, which is why the Dems are desperately trying to delay the thing. Guess they should have listened to Ted Cruz...
Elitist bastards. Why should the experience for Congressional staff somehow be exceptional?
Break the opposition into little pieces, separate enough to not be a constant drip.
Several key functionalites still need to be developed and integrated into the system. That will increase complexity and compound the problems IMO. Also, the security problems are going to be monumental, and well publicized when they happen. The train wreck will get much worse.
If they cannot get this right for friggin Congressional staff, the rest of the country is screwed.
Rather suggests that ‘friggin Congressional staff’ are better then the rest of us, doesn’t it? Arrogant A$$clowns.
I guess that staffer doesn’t care about his job ‘cause he’s about to get fired for advertising the truth.
The friggin Congressional staff are the ones who wright the laws, that the elected legislators don't read before they vote on them. They must have thought that they had covered their butts only to find them hanging out with the rest of the peons.
"Remember, this is only for 5% of the population since the employer mandates were delayed. How much larger will this mess be when the other 95% have to sign up?"
I say 'talking point' assuming there are still people willing to talk about it. My gut feeling is those who still support Obamacare won't change their minds no matter what they hear...
I assume you’re not acting surprised here.
This is the Chicago mob come to DC.
Obamacare is all about rewarding friends and penalizing enemies.
You nailed that one. Dead, DEAD silence at Thanksgiving... ;-)
Of course it is.Our salvation comes form the fact that most of the poor still can't afford coverage even if our taxes pay most of their premium.
And, what about the deductibles? I am seeing $6-12k annual deductibles in many places. This is not in the budget for any poor person.
BUT the section that verifies enrollee income and citizenship info worked......as did the healthcare website's voter registration and SNAP application functions, since the nervous Dims/Obama need that info for 2014 midterm elections.
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-
I hadn’t noticed. I try to check the site a dozen times a day. I think everyone should hit the site at least once an hour to ensure that the Federal Government is still there and looking out for our best interests.
It’s going to be nothing but fun waiting for the smokers to figger out that smoking can’t be a “pre-existing “condition? Aids is OK but smoking? You smokers please report immediately to your closest deathpanel. After they tie you to a post or gurney you’ll get one last cigarette. I’m still waiting for my check in the mail çause the Kenyan said I was gonna save $2,500 per year——waiting-—waiting-—not holding breath tho.
The Yankee government treatment of the Indians is goig to be a picnic compared to how they handle DeathCare.
Lung cancer kills people before their time. It usually can't be cured, so it's cheaper than treating people for Diabetes, which they'll get if they eat instead of smoke and blimp out and is expensive for treatment. So wouldn't it be a better idea to provide cigarettes for free?
Meanwhile, think about all of those STDs that will happen with no-consequence sex with mulitple partners. Women with STDs are more likely to have children with lifelong problems. They'll be expensive to keep healthy. Those free methods of birth control are going to get mighty expensive for society.
So what's the only logical conclusion? Free cigarettes for all and free condoms but not free birth control!
(for those of you who don't understand my humor, it's satire. I like to take absurd premises and follow them to the logical conclusion they would cause.)
still trying to get used to this new fangled internet
HTML is so hard
BTW, what is a hyperlink?
Now look at it layin' there. It's only going to get lots worse. Along with the next spring cleaning, the country will be looking to broom the Dems' for a generation or more.
Because they are smart enough to jump on the path to become lifetime parasites.
These staffers never get fired. They know too much. Vote one bastard out and the new bastard hires the old bastard’s staff. Plus a “niece” or two.
Let us not forget Oracle & Cover Oregon...
Not covered by subsidy and can be up to 50% increase. And since the poor smoke more ...
The poor are going on Medicaid. They really don’t care.
The working poor smoke a lot.
Agree, but they will either get freebie (Medicaid) or heavily subsidized ACA policies.
Obamacare was designed to reward Obama supporters and penalize enemies.
But I don't think the smoker's penalty is subsidized.
Agree, but in the lower income brackets the total bill isn’t very much.
Agree. Obamacare is going to do untold damage to our economy, and will be the direct cause of tens of thousands of deaths. This is the sort of thing that dictatorships are toppled for.
The Dems in Congress will be lucky if all they do is lose elections for a decade or so. The American public's reaction could be much, much worse.
“But I don’t think the smoker’s penalty is subsidized. “
So they should just lie. Lying seems to be the “in” thing
with this administration.
Bwahahahahaahahahahahaahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. DIMs/LIBs choke on your just desserts. Choke you preening maggots!
