At what point do we just shut this mess down and start prosecuting people. This is the biggest government disaster in American history, yet the buffoon Obama and his lackeys still babble about glitches and how awesomely popular this mess is. They knew it was failing and still went ahead with this. Who is responsible here?
Days before the launch of President Obama’s online health insurance marketplace, government officials and contractors tested a key part of the Web site to see whether it could handle tens of thousands of consumers at the same time. It crashed after a simulation in which just a few hundred people tried to log on simultaneously.
Despite the failed test, federal health officials plowed ahead.
When the Web site went live Oct. 1, it locked up shortly after midnight as about 2,000 users attempted to complete the first step, according to two people familiar with the project.
As new details emerged about early warning signs of serious deficiencies in HealthCare.gov, Obama on Monday gave a consumer-friendly defense of the health-care law, insisting that the problems many Americans have faced in trying to enroll in insurance plans will be fixed quickly.
“There’s no sugarcoating it: The Web site is too slow; people have been getting stuck during the application process,” he said at a White House event.
At the same time, he admonished Republican critics of the federal insurance exchange, saying that “it is time to stop rooting for its failure.”
Talk about a straw man. Nobody is rooting for failure. The GOP has been trying to prevent this catastrophic failure, yet this moron know it wasn’t working and proceeded anyway. Now we’re trying to prevent further failure. Yet he whines about people rooting for failure. You see, it’s all the GOP’s fault!
“We are now entering week four of the botched health-care rollout, and with hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars spent for a system that still does not work, Congress and the American people deserve answers,” the panel’s chairman, Rep. Fred Upton (R-Mich.), said in a statement.
