Skip to comments.Is Obamacare too much work for the Obama administration?

By the end of this week, states must decide whether they will build a health-insurance exchange or leave the task to the federal government. The question is, with as many as 17 states expected to leave it to the feds, can the Obama administration handle the workload.
These are systems that typically take two or three years to build, says Kevin Walsh, managing director of insurance exchange services at Xerox. The last time I looked at the calendar, thats not what were working with.
When Walsh meets with state officials deciding whether to build a health exchange, he brings a chart. It outlines how to build the insurance marketplace required under the Affordable Care Act. To call it complex would probably be an understatement:

Now the White House has to get into the complex details of setting up an unworkable system.
Currently the federales have a serious problem ~ Congress didn’t appropriate any funds for federal exchanges.
I sure hope Christie (N.J.) doesn’t cave on this. He already vetoed the first effort, earlier this year, but IIRC he left the door open to be convinced. Very worried, especially now that he’s BFF with the communist.
Defund this monstrosity. It doesn't require activism, but total do-nothing-ism. Let's see where Obama gets the money if Congress doesn't provide it.
1. Collect Underpants.
And right now the government is completely stuck in the "?" phase.
Imagine being a White House clerk and being told that youre homework assignment is to set up an excruciatingly complex ObamaCare exchange...for which there are NO funds to operate.
They can always outsource it! :)
Except their are NO funds for the federal government to set up ObamaCare exchanges. However, I love the concept of bureaucratic complexity being used as a weapon AGAINST the federal government. For years, the feds have burdened citizens and states with complex rules and regulations and now such complexity is being turned around and used against the feds.
If he switches it to a function of the Consumer Protection Board which is funded directly by the Fed, there’ll be plenty of funds.
As far as the employees go about 30% of them are in the postal service, and another 30% are in Department of defense ~ includes the soldiers and sailers. What you have left are scattered around the country answering public inquiries on the phone.
So, do you really want to send more mail and somehow bring down the federal government? ~
Not only are there no funds to build and operate it.....that with which they would sell through them.....”insurance policies”....most probably will likewise have little value in an ObamaCare world.
Congress didnt appropriate any funds for federal exchanges
And the damn well better not.
How ironic that progressive’s main wish will drown in their own spit. Karma works in strange and often unforeseen ways.
TOO F’N MUCH GOVERNMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Burn baby, burn!
With Benghazi, the Generals thier babes, Obamas inept staff, yelling cover, cover etc, there is a good chance the Kenyan admin will begin to fall apart....This needs to be promoted in the liberal rags, again and again.
No kidding. And just imagine if people on the "government plans" were to finally get an insurance card. Can you imagine waltzing down to your local healthcare provider and flashing the card around? It won't be like Visa or American Express, that's for sure, accepted anywhere. Who would take it?
