Sebelius: We Didn't Test ObamaCare Website Because Of The Republicans
FOX Nation ^ | 10/25/2013

Posted on 10/25/2013 4:00:50 PM PDT by Beave Meister

KATHLEEN SEBELIUS: In an ideal world there would have been a lot more testing. We did not have the luxury of that with a law that said it's go time on October 1st and frankly a political atmosphere where the majority party at least in the House was determined to stop this any way they possibly could including shutting down the United States government. So it was not an ideal atmosphere.

You have had 3 years to get it right and...and...and you failed because somebodyelse scared/frightened/made funny faces at you. This entire administration, from top to bottom, is staffed by losers.

Therefore, I am am idiot."

Sounds like Sebilius has a little problem with government shutdowns...... In 1971, her father, John Gilligan the governor of Ohio shut down Ohio’s state parks due to an income tax battle. It cost him his political career, history can repeat itself.

given the scope of this type of project required months and months of testing, two weeks of being unable to test being the failure reason is a blatant lie.

The thing that impresses me about Sebellius, and, I guess this rest of the rotten bunch, is how they don’t even flinch when they’re speaking these lies. I keep looking for a twinge. A gulp. Any sign that they’re human, and... nothing.

We have reached an EXTRAORDINARY tipping point.

Nothing like this has EVER occurred in our history.

We have, for the first time, a “law” that will directly affect, in a negative way, the same people that were supporters of that law.

Directly affect.

The withholding of taxes is an unseen, and not something that zombies, ever think about.

But their right to be taken care of, at a cost that they agree with, is for the first time going to impact then in a very personal way.

I say bring it on.

There is no amount of propaganda that will convince the group of people required to make this thing work, to do what is opposed to their own self interest.

We are dealing with a very large group of young Idealist that are extremely cynical.

The self absorbed idealist needs to “fish or cut bait”.

There is no way that they will accept their identity as someone that is happy to pay for something that doesn’t benefit them immediately.

In a word, "No".

In fact, no liberal administration has ever accepted responsibility for anything negative. Though they will eagerly step forward and claim credit for happy accidents...

Everybody who has ever worked in commercial software development knows Sebelius' excuse is nonsense. Testing goes on constantly during the development of any software project beyond a couple of pages of code.

The idea that a bunch of software developers would work for three years on a large website without testing it is about as plausible and likely as winning the Superbowl with a team made up of a dozen guys from the neighborhood, one of whom played some football in high school, after everybody had some burgers and beer in the parking lot.

That is the lamest excuse ever. If they really knew the website needed more time, they should have appeared magnanimous and after facing down the GOP defund proposal accepted the year delay with lots of bubbly talk about how it would give them a chance to optimize the use-experience on the exchanges.

Sebelius, like Obama, suffers from the delusion that just making decrees and rules and throwing money at projects can make things happen, and was caught completely flat-footed by the exchange software not working.

This bitch is spinning so much her head should fly off! They really REALLY think we’re stupid.

The message is only for liberals. And yes, they really, really think liberals are stupid. And yes, liberals really, really are stupid.

And ultimately, that is the problem. Liberals are broken. They are stupid because they have fallen and they can't get up. They are moral cripples, and they cannot survive without total group support. They have sacrificed everything for their state of absolute dependence, including the ability to be independent. They have killed their souls, their consciences, their morality, for their masters. And so, they bark when they are told to bark, sit when they are told to sit, heel when they are told to heel, and try to forget that they were ever free human beings.

Once you really comprehend the horror of what has happened to liberals, what they have done to themselves, and what they have lost, you realize that politics is the LEAST of their problems.
