President Obama is patting himself on the back after Congress approved a last-minute spending bill and averted a near economic disaster last night. The White House has ordered all furloughed employees to return to work this morning. They will receive back pay for the two weeks that they were out. Contract employees are being told they won’t receive a penny of back pay.
While Obama runs his victory lap around the White House, his pet project, the Affordable Healthcare Act, is still an Epic FAIL.
According to Politico.com, the Obamacare enrollment website remains inaccessible despite two weeks of Herculean efforts to repair the faulty website infrastructure.
What this means is ObamaCare has failed to register even a fraction of the millions of middle class citizens that are needed to subsidize health insurance for the poor and the illegal immigrants — who aren’t expected to sign up for ObamaCare.
Obama’s socialism experiment — robbing the middle class to give to the poor — isn’t working out for him.
HHS isn’t making any predictions about how long it will take to fix [the ObamaCare website] — or rebuild it. But advocates, lobbyists and industry officials are talking about it as a months-long repair effort.
A two-month delay, for instance, would be a different scenario than five or six months, particularly since people can face penalties if they don’t apply by mid-February.
In the meantime, few people can get through the enrollment process online. According to some analysts like Millward Brown Digital, thousands of consumers have stopped trying, at least for now.
At a summit of health care advocacy groups at the Newseum on Tuesday, the audience was asked how many had successfully made it through HealthCare.gov even far enough to browse the selection of health plans. Only two out of about 70 people raised their hands.
