The information-technology systems of Obamacare are still anywhere from 30 to 70 percent unfinished, an administration official testified today.
Admittedly, the answer from Henry Chao, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services deputy chief information officer, in a House hearing today isn’t really clear. At one point he seems to indicate 30 to 40 percent of the information-technology system supporting the Obamacare exchanges is unfinished; at another point it sounds more like he’s saying 60 to 70 percent. But the news is stunning either way: HealthCare.gov was launched with some massive parts unfinished, and they are still unfinished.
The stunning part begins about three minutes into the above video. Representative Cory Gardner (R., Colo.) asks Chao what percentage of the system remains to be built.
Chao says,“I think it’s, uh, just an approximation, we’re probably sitting somewhere between 60 and 70 percent, because we still have to build the systems–”
Gardner responds incredulously,“Sixty to seventy percent that needs to be built, still?”
Chao responds,“Because we still have to build the payment systems to make payments to issuers in January.”
“Let me get this correct,” Gardner says,“60 to 70 percent of Healthcare.gov still needs to be built?”
Chao responds,“It’s not really Healthcare.gov , it’s the federally facilitated marketplace.”
Gardner:“But the entire system that the American people are being required to rely on ...”
Chao:“That part is there. HealthCare.gov , the online application, verification, determination, plan compare, getting enrolled, generating enrollment transactions, that’s 100 percent there. What I’m talking about–”
Gardner:“But the entire system is 60 to 70 percent away from being complete?”
Chao:“There’s the back-office systems, the accounting systems, the payment systems, they still need be built.”
If is so far from finished ... why would a delay in the individual mandate be so unreasonable?

I'm not talking about the current Republican proposal. Try to keep up. I was talking about the Republican's "Health Equity and Access Reform Today Act of 1993." You know, the one that is very similar to Obamacare and was co-sponsored by almost half of all Senate Republicans.

FACT: Reagan's "Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act" ("one of the greatest unfunded mandates in American history") opened the door for the "free rider" program in which people intentionally go without health insurance, knowing the Reagan's Federal law requires hospitals to care for them anyway. That Reagan sure did us no favors now did he?

I did re-read it and said so in my next post-keep up!

Let's look at this very strange article by this mag who has a circ of only 44,000.

1)They use the same identical headline as they did in July. Some rewriting of article but pretty much a re-hash- which cause some confusion on my part as I was flipping from one to the other.

2) Despite every other poll showing a sharp increase of people opposing Obamacare they claim they did not see much change. That stretches credibility.

3) All ethical polls release their findings to the public. NJ hid their's behind "pay for" wall. It would have been very interesting to see the internals and do a comparison.

Yea gad, USA your poll was done in JULY
http://www.nationaljournal.com/congressional-...
Way before everyone knew the effects of this LAW and the Dems had lied!
I withdraw my apology and repeat you are an idiot!
Here you go...a poll from this month:

November 19, 2013:

"A new national poll is out, asking people if they want to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

Overall, 38% support full repeal. But there are big differences by demographic group and political party."

"The only groups that want to repeal the law are Republicans (74%) and whites who are not college graduates (53%)."

"There’s been a small change in the percentage who want repeal. This view increased from 36% to 38% between July and November 2013.

However, when broken down by political party, all of the increase in pro-repeal sentiment came from Republicans."

In July, 65% of Republicans supported repeal. Now 74% do.

Democrats did not budge at all. Only 9% supported repeal in July and the same is true now.

Independents barely changed. In July, 41% wanted to repeal the law. Now 40% do.

Previous polls showed that more Americans say they oppose the ACA than support it, but there was not support for repealing the law.(Those polls also show that dislike of the law includes people who believe the law is “too liberal” and those who say it’s “not liberal enough.”) This is yet another poll demonstrating that most Americans do not want the law repealed.

At the same time, the poor implementation has undermined Obama’s political position

Another poll out today found that President Obama’s approval ratings have taken a hit. He’s down to 42% approval. Approval for how he’s implemented the law is a paltry 33%.

But, when asked whether Obama “intentionally misled the American people” about being able to keep their insurance plans or whether he “told the American people what he believed to be true,” 44% say he was intentionally misleading and 52% say he believed what he said.

This poll did not ask about repealing the Affordable Care Act. It did find support for delaying the mandate because of website problems (71%). The mandate has always been the least popular part of the ACA.

Clearly the bad roll-out of the insurance marketplace mattered - both politically and for people’s ability to sign up for insurance. But most Americans do not want to see the law repealed."

Gee, and when I said the Reps as well as smarter Dems-back then -abandoned the 1993 act (Part of the Hilary Debacle) due to it being too expensive, unworkable and questionably constitutional and it was the Dems who decided to go ahead anyway over a decade latter ---your response was "what did that have to do with it?"

THE REPUBLICANS ABANDONED THE ACT in 1993. It NEVER became Law.

The DEMS in 2009 by their lonesome decided to make the very BAD legislation LAW!

Yes, Reagan was just not callous enough to deny people emergency care. That horrible, horrible person for signing a law which had wide bi-partisan and public support.

Semantics - call it whatever you want if it makes you feel better. The vast majority of people think the ACA is sh*t.

New High: 58% View Obamacare Unfavorably

Only 38% of Likely U.S. Voters (useful idiot, misinformed democRATS) now have at least a somewhat favorable opinion of the new national health care law. That’s down seven points from 45% a month ago.

BTW, Obama DID lie. He lied repeatedly to the American people. His lies are the reason the ACA bill passed into law.

You are still using the same poll as before which is questionable as it goes against findings of all other polls. How can approval of Obamacare see a remarkable drop in every other poll while this group says they see very little change?

In other words, I wouldn't bank on their findings.

The Daily Kos is a group blog. Most of the posts are from activist.
It is a discussion forum to promote Progressive ideologies.

If this is all he knows about politics, than he is very misguided.

MSNBC was started because NBC thought America had swung Progressive. With this loosing favor as seen by their ratings, it will be interesting to see if they will close or re-vamp.

LMAO!

A poll from FLAMING LIBERAL Amy Fried of the Bangor Daily News?

"Prof. Fried’s research primarily concerns public opinion, particularly the history and political uses of public opinion in the United States, as well as political ideas and activism."

"In addition, she is co-leader of the Maine chapter of the Scholars Strategy Network, a national group that brings together scholars to address public challenges and their policy implications."

The Scholars Strategy Network is Ultra-Progressive.
