Skip to comments.Update: Obama blames Republicans, shutdown (for website problems)
Posted on 10/21/2013 8:12:42 PM PDT by chessplayer
About three weeks ago, as the federal government shutdown, and the Affordable Care Acts health insurance marketplaces opened up across the country, said Obama. Well, weve now gotten the government back open for the American people and today I want to talk about how were going to get the marketplaces running at full steam as well.
Say what? The White House had three and a half years to get this ready, and it rolled out on the same day as the shutdown. The website issues existed long before the shutdown, and the Obama administration was well aware of them before the shutdown and decided to proceed anyway. Talk about spin.
Probably has it´s origin in George W. I wouldn´t be surprised. I´d just go ahead and blame George W Bush, and get it overwith. It´s NEVER their problem. Remember it´s NEVER their problem.
I mean, really,...what do expect for 680 billion dollars? (puke)
I hate Republicans. If it wasn’t for them this would be a utopia.
Pray America is Waking Up
I do not like this Uncle Sam, I do not like his health care scam.
I do not like these dirty crooks, or how they lie and cook the books!
I do not like when congress steals, I do not like their secret deals.
I do not like this speaker man, I do not like this, yes we can!”
I do not like this spending spree, Im smart, I know that nothings free. ...
I do not like their smug replies, when I complain about their lies.
I do not like this kind of hope, I do not like it, nope, nope, nope!
This is already working. The low info crowd thinks that it’s because of the shutdown. Our society is doomed. Too stupid to survive.
All those year of Lib Edumacation. Dumbed down fer sure.
Delusional, the evil Won is.
I hate Green Eggs and Ham, Uncle Sam I am!
You raise doggerel to an art form. Bravo.
Juan, Mitch, Ayotte, Linda, Cornyn, Alexander agree.
Gee ... I just ... I just did not see that coming ...
Lib sites like DU were already in full “website problems are all the GOP’s fault” mode even before bammers whine today. Now with him officially blaming the GOP for it, the media will run with it.
I’ll bet this sorry little bass turd was always in trouble when he was young too. He probably always pointed his crooked little finger at some other kid then too. Must be nice to be perfect.
This is already working. The low info crowd thinks that its because of the shutdown.
Yup. bammer, sebileous, etc., will come out of this without a scratch.
bo sounded like Cal Worthington (SoCal Car Salesman) —
‘Call this 800 number ...’
‘There are no wait times over one minute ...’
THIS is supposed to pass for a PRESIDENT of the US????
Oh my, that is off-the-charts outstanding! Deserves a permanent spot at the top of the FR forum page. :)
I have seen some comments from libs at various sites and they do believe that the website doesn’t work because of the shutdown.
And some are saying the GOP managed to hack it and sabotage it. Lots of straws for bammy to successfully grab and run with to avoid responsibility.
Verizon’s Enterprise Solutions division has been asked by the Department of Health and Human Services to improve the performance of the HealthCare.gov site?????
If there’s somethin’ strange in your federal health exchange
Who ya gonna call?
If it’s somethin’ weird an’ it don’t look good
Who ya gonna call?
I ain’t afraid o’ no code
I ain’t afraid o’ no code
Bustin’ healthcare makes me feel good!
Yep. I predict Obama will be forced to delay at least part of Obamacare, and this website fiasco gives him a convenient scapegoat for a law filled with many far more serious problems.
Obama is a master at 3 card monte, a true huckster that never blushes.
These must be the great majority who haven’t found out what their premiums, deductibles and coverage will be .....
Once they’re mugged, I expect to see a lot of noob sign-ons as we polish off Old Man 2013. Let’s try to remember to be patient with them.
Another lousy Zero year, then two more with this lame duck, then good riddance to him and his crackpot commie friends and notions.
Well I blame Obama’s Mama for all this =)
Probably union workers that don’t have to pay for their health plans, kids on their parent’s plan as they live in the basement, etc.
Good job! That is good stuff.
I expect exactly what Obama said!...âWe’ll fix this problem.â!!!...(to paraphrase)...no matter how much it cost you taxpayers..we have hired every possible person and paying them for working 24/7âs..Its not about the site...its about âAFORDABLEâ health care......./s..makes me sick the sheep haven’t rebelled yet!
As massive fan of Dr. Seuss...
I commend you!
I smell a free “upgrade” coming for all of the Obamaphone freeloaders with each ObamaCare application they submit.
jay carney was asked if people will still be fined even if they can’t get through the broken website. He refused to say no.
Hey, it worked for Stalin in the Ukraine
Actually it is George W Bush’s fault the Healthcare.gov web site is not working.
Asked if the administration is looking for flexibility in applying the mandate, Carney said: "Whatever conclusions you draw about the way the law is written, I think you can draw. The law is clear that if you do not have access to affordable health insurance, then you will not be asked to pay a penalty because you haven't purchased affordable health insurance."
Sounds to me like he said 'no.'
>> Nothing Is My Fault...
We need to dispense with the notion govt is in control.
Obama blames Republicans, shutdown (for website problems)You always hurt the ones who love you.
Well at least he's gotten beyond Bush.
So what will the excuse be in a month or two? Republicans thinking negative thoughts disrupting the services?
<<< and the Affordable Care Acts health insurance marketplaces opened up >>>
They didn’t open up. They crashed. That’s the problem you moron.
That is BRILLIANT!
“We had 20,000,000 hits on the website since rollout...”
Too bad no reporter raised his hand and said “20 million hits but only 5000 signups. Why is that, Lord Obama?”
Thanks for spreading the word.
