The Obama administration is even deeper in denial about the ObamaCare fiasco than the president's shockingly bewildered speech yesterday indicated. Witness the new ad touting HealthCare.gov, the nonfunctioning website (don't worry, they put it on YouTube).
"The site was very easy to use," declares Deborah Lielasus, a self-employed quinquagenarian New Hampshire woman, who, according to the YouTube blurb, "will save hundreds of dollars each month" and "has better coverage, lower deductibles, and lower co-pays."
Did she really find the site "very easy to use"? We suppose this is subjective, and maybe she has preternatural patience or is some kind of computer savant. But National Review's Sterling Beard managed to track her down, and she "said it actually took her three days to enroll." The ad would be deceptive if it weren't so unbelievable to begin with.

Doing nothing while the screen takes 72hours to redraw is easy to do. Boring as hell but it sure is easy!
The woman in the ad is either clueless or omitting the truth about her new health insurance policy. First off, I doubt it is cheaper, or has a lower deductible, but since she doesn’t provide any real numbers it is hard to say.
But I do know that her new policy has nowhere near the coverage and benefits any policy she had before did. All of the policies offered on the New Hampshire exchange do not provide any benefits for out of network hospitals or doctors. Even the hospital in her hometown of Portsmouth NH is not covered by her insurance since its not in the very limited Anthem Obamacare network. But the real problem is that her policy doesn’t cover any of the major research hospitals in Boston. If she or her husband get really sick, or are in a serious accident they are very likely to be referred to, or admitted to one of the larger or specialized hospitals like Dana Farber Cancer Institute, or Mass General Hospital.
Before Obamacare just about every policy in New Hampshire provided for coverage at any hospital. Now people like Deborah have no coverage at all for truly serious medical conditions.
Many people suspected Obamacare would be bad, but I don’t think anybody expected that they would simply refuse to provide at least some benefits at the specialist hospitals where you end up if you are really sick.
It’s an ad.
She was probably paid some of that missing $6xx million to be a convincing liar.
Bought and paid for.
Another name comes to mind.
I’d like to know if you need to pay the first month insurance premium BEFORE you “enroll.”
I doubt it.
It’s just one more meaningless number thrown out at us, like “website visits” and “applications.”
Slowly but surely I'm learning the ever more frightening details of ObamaCare.
Yes we can!!!
Well that Nigerian king is in the 1%. No wonder he stole her identity, he’s evil.
Ever watch the show ‘Shark Tank’?
I would love to see Barry try to pitch commiecare...and have the investors tear him apart with very simple questions.
"quinquagenarian" just had to do it, couldn't just say 50 year old rug muncher.
