Naturally, they ignored the warnings.
Major insurers, state health-care officials and Democratic allies repeatedly warned the Obama administration in recent months that the new federal health-insurance exchange had significant problems, according to people familiar with the conversations. Despite those warnings and intense criticism from Republicans, the White House proceeded with an Oct. 1 launch.
A week after the federal Web site opened, technical problems continued to plague the system, and on Tuesday people were locked out until 10 a.m., although some applicants were able to sign up as the day went on. Officials said they were working 24 hours a day to improve the system and that they were confident it would soon be able to meet the demand. They added that there was ample time to correct the site to allow consumers to get insured by Jan. 1.
Come January 1 there will be countless people left uninsured thanks to the gross incompetence and negligence of these boobs. Great job, Bammy. Meanwhile, anonymous sources say they warned the idiots, but were ignored:
Two allies of the administration, both of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the controversy surrounding the rollout, said they approached White House officials this year to raise concerns that the federal exchange was not ready to launch. In both cases, Obama officials assured them there was no cause for alarm.
Oh, and if you were “fortunate” enough to get through and create an account? Good luck entering your password.
Amazingly, not a single “reporter” dared to ask Obama about his mess as Tuesday’s presser.
