It is functional, but at a very slow speed and very low reliability, and has continued to function." Cue the website crashing.

    McCain thinks it's been a 'fiasco,' Pelosi sees room for improvement.

He acknowledged that some "Republican grey beards in Washington" want to let ObamaCare "collapse" and "hope we benefit politically," but laced that line of thinking as a "terrible, cynical approach." John McCain joined in, calling for congressional hearings to "find out...

    Sebelius: Obamacare Opponents Are Like Segregationists By Andrew Johnson July 22, 2013 4:20 PM As Andy McCarthy noted in his column over the weekend, during her speech to the NAACP last week, Health and Human Services secretary Kathleen Sebelius likened opponents of the Affordable Care Act to opponents of desegregation. She also tried to draw similarities between the creation of Medicare and Medicaid and the enactment of civil-rights legislation from the same era. “What we heard back then is what we’re hearing now, the same arguments against change, the same fear and misinformation that opponents used are the ones opponents...

The campaign trip comes after the Office of Special Counsel found that Sebelius had violated federal campaign law by campaigning for Obama during an official event. “OSC concluded that Secretary Sebelius violated the Hatch Act when

    After Film Warning Kids Not to Call Others 'Jerks,' Sebelius Tells Kids to Say: 'You're Being a Jerk' By Penny Starr March 15, 2012 (CNSNews.com) - Immediately after showing middle-school students a new video from the Cartoon Network that admonishes children not to call people names like "stupid," "fat," and "jerk," Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told the students they could do a lot of good by telling some students they were "jerks." It "can make a huge amount of difference," she said. Sebelius' remarks came in response to a question from CNN’s Don Lemon, who served as...

    The Health and Human Services Department granted 39 new waivers last month from part of the healthcare law, bringing the total to just shy of 1,500.In September, HHS will stop the process of granting a new batch of one-year waivers at the end of each month. Companies have until Sept. 22 to file their initial application for a one-year reprieve and seek an extension to carry them through the next three years.Department officials said they decided on the September cutoff because, by then, every company that thinks it needs a waiver would have had time to apply.
