Transparency: Obama Opposes Weekly Reports on ObamaCare

Barack Obama, accountable to no one.

The Obama administration said Thursday it opposes legislation that would require weekly reports on the implementation of ObamaCare, as well as legislation requiring officials to tell people if their personal data has been compromised.

But while the White House said it opposes both bills, neither of its two statements said Obama would veto either measure if they were presented for his signature into law. The House is expected to pass both bills on Friday.

In the first of two separate Statements of Administration Policy, the White House said it opposes weekly reporting requirements on both enrollments and the operation of the HealthCare.gov website because it would require “unfunded, unprecedented, and unnecessary reporting requirements” on the health insurance exchanges.

Unfunded. That’s a laugh coming from the people with the billion-dollar website that barely functions. In other Obama trainwreck news buried deep beneath the Christie feeding frenzy, insurers are discovering they have no record of people allegedly signed up.

One last word on ObamaCare. Please, stop calling it ObamaCare!

Wait, what?

    That’s funny. They have no problem with “unfunded, unprecedented, and unnecessary reporting requirements” on every business in this country.

    What do you expect from a person who has never run anything in his life. He can’t possibly understand that project management requires timely measurements. His only paranoid concern is the politics of “what if the numbers are bad”… Forty years of industrial experience taught me that failed projects almost always failed because the mangers either didn’t do measurements or fudged the numbers.

    “What do you expect from a person who has never run anything in his life.”

    He has run something for the past five years : the country into the ground.

    I completely agree that it should not be called “Obamacare.” It should be be called “Democratcare”, or something like that, to make it clear that responsibility for this disaster is not Obama’s alone, or even majorly: if I recall correctly, he had very little to do with drafting the bill or with the parliamentary shenanigans associated with passing it.

    The Democrats should not be given any cover to duck their responsibility for this monstrosity after Obama leaves office.

    I will always call it Obamacare, but I could be talked into calling it Progressivecare. Hopefully, it will have the same fate as Prohibition — another thing Progressives insisted on cramming down the throats of all Americans.

    “unfunded, unprecedented, and unnecessary reporting requirements” This is a laugh on so many levels. First, unfunded. When every day, they keep changing things, adding “navigators” adding hundreds of people to phone banks, creating new advertising campaigns. Never any talk of where the money is coming from for that useless stuff. Not to mention the onerous bureaucracy they impose with these 80,000 pages of regulations.

    Unnecessary and unprecedented? What would be unprecedented is that you have a project that is not already collecting and reacting to these types of basic metrics. If you are not already collecting it, presenting it daily, making it available internally via dashboards – then you should not be running a $10,000 IT project. Period. The cost to make the dashboard public would be in the $5,000 range.

    Lying liars. In early October, Sebelius stated either to congress or a news conference when asked about what the goals were for signups, said that they did not have any. She was proven a liar when internal reports showed what their goals were fore each month through March, and that she was part of the group that discussed these goals regularly.
