The incompetence has always been there...

OBAMA's Administration bungled Obamacare long before GOP had power to obstruct:

In the memo, dated May 11, 2010 and sent to top administration economic official Larry Summers, Harvard professor and health care expert David Cutler, a supporter of the administration's efforts, wrote that "the early implementation efforts are far short of what it will take to implement reform successfully." Cutler continued: "For health reform to be successful, the relevant people need a vision about health system transformation and the managerial ability to carry out that vision. The President has sketched out such a vision. However, I do not believe the relevant members of the Administration understand the President's vision or have the capability to carry it out."

Cutler laid out a set of problems: 1) poor leadership at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, a key organization in creating Obamacare; 2) clueless management at the Department of Health and Human Services on the subject of setting up exchanges; 3) an ineffective effort to work with insurers in implementing reform; and 4) general incompetence. "The overall head of implementation inside HHS, Jeanne Lambrew, is known for her knowledge of Congress, her commitment to the poor, and her mistrust of insurance companies," Cutler wrote. "She is not known for operational ability, knowledge of delivery systems, or facilitating widespread change."

NOT affordable,
NOT accessible,
NOT available,

NOW,

Top hospitals opt out of Obamacare:

The Obama administration has been claiming that insurance companies will be competing for your dollars under the Affordable Care Act, but apparently they haven’t surveyed the nation’s top hospitals.

Watchdog.org looked at the top 18 hospitals nationwide as ranked by U.S. News and World Report for 2013-2014. We contacted each hospital to determine their contracts and talked to several insurance companies, as well.

The result of our investigation: Many top hospitals are simply opting out of Obamacare.

Republicans now say they want congress and all americans under the same medical plan.... Then I ask why did you not endorse the single payer plan the democrats first wanted?? A plan the president and democrats negociated away from?? OMG the democrats did negociate.
Also I`d like to point out that if you go onto the website exchange I see alot of private insurance companies in a free market place fighting for your business. I thought that what you republicans were all about. A free market place. It seems you are not really about anything are you?? You talk a good game about standing on your princeples but deep down the only princeple you have is trying to hurt others.
Try not letting people like Hannity, Rush and Backmann do your thinking for you.

The chickens coming home to roost:

Democratic officials said top administration aides got a close-up view of the cancellation controversy last week, when Sen. Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., said at a closed-door meeting of the party's rank and file that his son had received notice his coverage was being terminated.

No Hope Left for Obamacare’s Website, Techies Say:

According to tech experts, the sorry state of the current website does little to inspire confidence that it can be fixed and functional in less than three weeks.

“When I visited healthcare.gov on October first 1, that was the worst piece of software I’ve ever experienced in my life,” said Luke Chung, founder and CEO of the software company FMS.“It had nothing to do with too many users. It couldn’t serve one user.”

According to Sumit Nijhawan, CEO of Infogix, a data security firm working with private insurers, even if the White House can fix the problems associated with the site, they're going to find new ones immediately. Nijhawan also warned that the systems that allow CMS and health insurance companies to exchange information are no where close to being ready, meaning tech problems could last years.

Too funny - The FACE of the ACA web site is from Columbia and NOT a US citizen.

She has NOT signed up throught the ACA web site and is neither in favor nor against it.

This pretty much sums up Obama's Cluster Flock (remember Heartbreak Ridge?) called the Affordable Care Act.

ObamaCare may be a disaster for the millions of Americans whose health insurance plans are being canceled, the millions of Americans who cannot use the government’s website, and the taxpayers forced to foot the bill for the boondoggle. But make no mistake -- at least one group of Americans loves ObamaCare: the president’s big money backers and cronies who stand to bag millions of your tax dollars amid the mess.

Now OBAMA says that it is the Republican's fault:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: The last point I'll make is that in terms of expectation setting, there's no doubt that in an environment in which we had to fight tooth and nail to get this passed, it ended up being passed on a partisan basis -- not for lack of trying, because I met with an awful lot of Republicans to try to get them to go along -- but because there was just ideological resistance to the idea of dealing with the uninsured and people with preexisting conditions. There was a price to that, and it was that what was already going to be hard was operating within a very difficult political environment. And we should have anticipated that that would create a rockier rollout than if Democrats and Republicans were both invested in success.

Again, you are accusing me of hate for giving a link to the facts as reported by Obama's guy. I would classify that as a deflect from the real issues.
