It simply can’t be fixed. This is just the mechanics. That’s only a miniscule part of the problem.

In Issa’s opening statement he mentioned that oversight hearings were controlled by Pelosi in the first 2 years of this regime.

These hearings would not be possible without GOP majority in the House.

Discrepancy between documents from CMS/ Vendor showing the website passed the testing, while Chao says it did not pass testing.
Suggestion is that the administration is not giving full disclosure and is denying Mr. Chao’s statement.

For perspective, in the time we were attacked at Pearl Harbor to the day Germany surrendered is not enough time for the Obama Administration to build a website whose only role is to figure out who you are, what subsidies you qualify for and direct you to health insurance offerings provided for and formulated in the private sector.

time for the Obama Administration to build a website
************
And they had over 3 years to build this!

Mr John Duncan asks how much more money and how much longer?

How is it that they have a website for Medicare that works, social security, several DOD websites, EPA, etc and this website doesn’t work?

Everyone associated with this Obamacare debacle,is only looking out for their own good.

Not one gives a darn about the Americans that are losing their healthcare and being forced into this mess.
