Breitbart ^ | Mar 20, 2014 | staff

SALEM, Ore. – Cover Oregon director Bruce Goldberg has resigned, Gov. John Kitzhaber said during his press conference on Thursday at which he released the results of an investigation into the troubled website. Goldberg, who was head of the Oregon Health Authority while the website was being built, took over after Rocky King stepped aside in December. The announcement came as Kitzhaber discussed what he called “very credible and very sobering” report from First Data.

“I am angry and I am disappointed by the rollout of Cover Oregon,” he said.

Among the problems the report outlined were a fundamental breakdown in project management; an overly ambitious scope; mistrust between Cover Oregon and OHA;

I am also angry, and I am also disappointed that they rolled out ObamaCare. The idea of intentionally inflicting such a destructive law on Americans disgusts me. When legislators need as many penalties and enforcement mechanisms as ObamaCare has, any sensible person knows it’s about FedGov power and not about helping the little people who succumb to the new law.

So why doesn’t this K fool resign immediately? What a profound chronic moral-less, ethic-less DIM/LIB degenerate.

From the article comments:

Something the article leaves out: As of Feb. 17th, Oregon had spent $304 million of taxpayer’s money building the website exchange....and had enrolled NOBODY.

Don’t be silly. Dems wrote this terrible law with no republican help. Dems passed this terrible law with no republican votes. Dems signed this terrible law from a Dem White House. Dems implemented this terrible law with no republican input. It’s not the Dem governor’s fault that it was a catastrophic failure. It’s the fault of republicans for not fixing this stupid and unfixable idea for the Dems.

Even Breitbart can't subscribe to the good reporting requirement that sitting politicians be identified by office AND party whenever mentioned.

Kitzhaber is a profound democrat jackass.

As a former physician, Kitzhaber has never failed to pursue his vision for "progressive" healthcare. At last, he seems to have found it.

Dr. No is angry because it just might reflect badly on the publics view of his ability to be a leader. Maybe he will just leave Oregon for another 8 years until his pride is restored...its his pattern of running away when confronted with opposing views that the news media has forgotten about.

What all this “healthcare legislation” was really designed to do was steal money from the taxpayees and funnel it to RAT fat cats, who, after taking their substantial cut, funneled the balance back to the RAT Party functionaries. That plus create a “healthcare analog” to the Post Office.

Never mind the website, you can't fix with software what's broken in fundamental design.

Kitzhaber is the governor of Oregon. What did he expect - competency from his marxist state?

Me thinks the governor is a lying jackwagon, or he’s a friggin’ stooge with a pair of rose colored glasses. Everybody from Obama to the uninsured knew Obamacare was a clusterfist from the start, or in this instance, everybody except the governor of Oregon. Either way, he’s an skunk of the first order.

Kitzhaber is a liar and a thief. He only worked as a physician for 10 years and knows NOTHING about out-patient medicine.
He needs to resign.

This was being discussed on the Lars Larson radio show today. It sounded to me like there were no ‘deliverables’ or timelines in the contract signed with Oracle. Bad management from the beginning.

It’s the fault of republicans for not fixing this stupid and unfixable idea for the Dems....Fixing it means killing it in the cradle. Killing it means the Senate must approve. The Senate is Dem majority. Dems will never approve.

They’d get more sympathy if they hadn’t insisted on dragging the rest of us into their delusional fantasy world.
