Yesterday, the President donned his Rose Garden Pom-Poms cheering to the world that although it was experiencing a few “glitches”, his new business venture – HealthCare.Gov -was a rousing success. Also in the news yesterday was an article from Consumer Reports advising Americans to try signing up again later…in a month or so.
For 3 weeks, the blog for the supposedly objective Magazine has been trying to calm the angst of would-be-signer-uppers – and it’s no wonder, they supported ObamaCare from the get-go. How embarrassing for them to have to now put away their Pom-Poms, telling folks..
If all this is too much for you to absorb, follow our previous advice: Stay away from Healthcare.gov for at least another month if you can.
Which is why the President should have had cheeks the color of the nearby roses instead of brushing the “glitches” under the perfectly manicured sod. Adding insult to injury, USA Today reported last week that the federal health care exchange was built using 10-year-old technology that may require constant fixes and updates for the next six months and the eventual overhaul of the entire system.
But Americans shouldn’t worry, right? After all, we know Kathleen Sebelius knows how to manage the budget of her new Monolithic Monopoly. The website alone has cost a trite…well, no one knows for sure how much it has cost so far. It’s somewhere in the range of $200Million and $634Million – which, by the way, was outsourced to a Canadian Information Technology Company.
Yeah, Baby…life’s a Glitch.
