By now we all know about the "glitch" that has occurred to the centerpiece of Barak Obama's Presidential legacy. While he, the democrats, and the Main Stream Media describe this train wreck as a glitch we are beginning to see what is really going on (no pun intended) here. First, before we even discuss the techno issues surrounding the implosion of the Affordable Health Care Act we must address the first looming issue. That issue is the lies that were given to all of us out here across the continent about:
1) Obamacare will give over 30MM uninsured Americans free healthcare.
2) You can keep your same insurance company and or doctor.
3) Obamacare will save each household approximately $2,500 a year in premiums.
We now know the truth that each of these advertised promises for this Government product were grossly misleading if not an outright lie. When the private sector catches a private business of deceptive advertising, it is prosecuted (some instances) and sued out of existence. The above lies do not even cover the deceptions about the true costs promised (which couldn't be scored by the CBO) as well as the whole legislation is, by it's own words, a ponsi scheme as defined by the SEC.
We know that the books the Government keeps and the way it's accounting is handled is something that would be prosecuted in the private sector. Now it seems that there is nothing the Government can't do in which the private sector must.
Kathleen Sebelius is still employed. In the private sector, she would be perp walked out of the building in silver bracelets. Same goes for this President. The scandals that keep piling up without any recourse from prosecution or even heavy scrutiny is outrageous. Fast and Furious. IRS targeting private sector Conservative organizations. Benghazi. The list goes on and on. Just when will the "buck stop here" apply to anyone in this mess called Democrat controlled government?
The Obamacare website was touted as a cutting edge virtual place where one could go and shop for competitive health insurance plans, side by side, to make qualified decisions in Kumbaya land. Michelle Malken has a great article today that reminds us about the myriad of Obama IT Czars whom were touted, when hired as "Obama's top government titans of information technology." Malking lays it out:
In 2009 Obama named then 34-year-old "whiz kid" Vivek Kundra to the post overseeing $80 billion in government IT spending.
Obama's "U.S. chief technology officer." In May 2009, the president appointed Aneesh Chopra "to promote technological innovation to help the country meet its goals such as job creation, reducing health care costs and protecting the homeland.
Obama replaced Chopra with Todd Park, the former "chief technology officer of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services." The White House described him as a "change agent and 'entrepreneur-in-residence,' helping HHS harness the power of data, technology and innovation to improve the health of the nation."
In 2011, Obama appointed former Microsoft executive and FCC managing director Steven VanRoekel to succeed Kundra. At the time, he promised "to make sure that the pace of innovation in the private sector can be applied to the model that is government."
Now, with all eyes on the glaring failures of the Utopian socialized medicine vision upon us, Obama feigns anger and dismay. His answer is to bring into the fold the technology experts from the private sector to once and for all fix the "glitch".
Who does he trot out? None other than Todd Park (see above). So, instead of bringing fresh eyes to the problems this administration brings in the one person who had his hand in the fetid pie since it's inception.
Fox News released it's poll Thursday that shows 73% of Americans are dissatisfied with the direction of the United States. I wonder why. Could it be that at the same time insurers are dropping millions of those currently medically insured the Unavailable Healthcare Act isn't catching them.
