Republicans had better stop talking about “glitches” and speak-out on the ways that Obamacare is affecting freedom of choice, quality of service, and economic growth.

Speaking of glitches, check out the glitch in the launch of the R.M.S. Titanic:

Yes. Malfunctions can be fixed, at least enough to mitigate most complaints. The core problem remains: a fascist government taking over industries and forcing consumers to buy products they don’t want at prices they can’t afford.

This administration coined the term “man-caused disaster”. I believe it is much more appropriately used here in place of “glitch”.

Most of these are funny but I personally object to the use of the imagery of the Challenger explosion to poke fun at the Obama Regime.

It's not appropriate.

Enrolled or not... bleeding to death on a gurney outside the ER ain't a ‘glitch’!

But I get the impression it will be TYPICAL of “O’care” even down the road once everyone who CAN qualify gets enrolled!

Surprise, surprise!!!

I respectfully disagree.

The Challenger disaster is a perfect glitch.

The engineers in charge refused to authorize the launch, it was simply too cold to guarantee safe operation.

Management ‘knew best” and authorized it over their objections.

This is a close model to obama and congress overriding industry experts and forcing the premature launch of obamaCare.

The Challenger loss only cost 7 lives, obamaCare will cost many more in the near term, and uncountable millions in the end.

Imagine coming into a hospital emergency room with chest pains and being told that due to an Obamacare glitch you cannot be treated today, but could come back in 3-4 days when the glitch may be resolved.

Challenger was a system, or normal accident as a result of a number of organizational factors. The triggers (wind shear, temperature, etc) were related to a known “glitch” in O-ring limitations at Thiakol.

Obama care is a standing organizational nightmare - a pre-existing condition if you will - suffering completely unrelated technical problems in the roll-out phase.

Yes. A known glitch utterly ignored by management despite the pleadings of the engineers, and even ALL of the engineers REFUSING to be bullied into signing off.

Launch it anyway, I'm the boss, and I say so!

(...and in an irony of ironies, even if she successfully made it into orbit, I'd bet the heat shield would have been shredded by falling ice at launch.)

I am told by those on Medicaid that an emergency means you will be seen and treated (maybe) in one month, provided a clinician is available. Non-emergencies rate an appointment in 3 months with the same provisos.

Really??...I mean...REALLY????

But you don't care about the Titanic and Hindenberg losses, where far more died?

And ObamaCare will end up killing WAY, WAY more.

But you must still be stuck on that 'Teachers in Space' thingy.
