The nonsense these people make up and they expect to be believed.
President Obama was briefed over the weekend on efforts by the administration to keep the ObamaCare website functioning as consumers race to purchase insurance before Christmas.
According to a White House official, Obama received a “detailed update” about preparations.
“He was briefed on the efforts to ensure that the website could handle the large amount of traffic that was predicted and on efforts to ensure a smooth transition on Jan. 1,” the official said.
He is all over it!
On Monday, the administration announced consumers would have a one-day grace period on Christmas Eve to purchase insurance that would go into effect by Jan. 1. Julie Bataille, a spokeswoman for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, said the delay was to help ensure all who wanted insurance could access it.
“Anticipating high demand and the fact that consumers may be enrolling from multiple time zones, we have taken steps to make sure that those who select a plan through tomorrow will get coverage for Jan 1,” she said.
Who could possibly have anticipated people from multiple time zones would attempt to sign up for this hot mess after Obama had their insurance canceled? Did they just notice our 57 states encompass multiple time zones?
Earlier Monday, the White House announced that Obama himself had enrolled in the healthcare exchange over the weekend.
According to a White House official, the president selected a bronze plan in a largely symbolic gesture designed to promote enrollment. The president and first family will continue to receive his healthcare through military physicians.
Largely symbolic. Nothing could better describe this empty suit of a president. Pathetic.
