ObamaCare launch is debacle of the leadership’s own making
Everything I read about this debacle that is ObamaCare’s launch is summed up pretty well in this paragraph:
In an era where Google is making self-driving cars and Amazon offers next-day delivery for just about anything, the White House plunged ahead with a system it knew to be defective and is relying on the technology of the 19th century as the fall-back. Five days before the exchanges launched, the Health and Human Services Department increased the Virginia information technology company Serco’s $114 million contract by $87 million—to help process paper applications. Are contingency plans in place to sign up via telegraph?
Pitiful doesn’t begin to describe the effort. Incompetent is too tame to encompass the leadership. Inept would be a compliment if describing the launch.
And yet we think these people, the people who designed and put this monstrosity together and thought it good enough to launch, can be trusted with our health care.
It makes one wonder about the collective intelligence of the citizenry.
P.S. Thought you’d like to know that in the new liberal conventional wisdom, “death panels” are now a “good thing”, especially if the state has final say.
Gee, never saw that coming.
BTW, can anyone guess the greatest lie of the 21st Century to date?
