For sure, is he a president or a professor? Maybe he should listen to his own advice.

Why messiah declared all the glitches with the ACA Exchange as due to the high volume of users! But, he did pitch the reason: "It's a great product and affodable." Hahahaha. I guess he didn't get on to see what he would have to pay if he weren't messiah.

Curious though, after some $631 Million to contractors and 4 years later, why ain't it workin'? He even said he was going to get som IT guys lookin' into it. Ain't them thar contractors computer programmers? Yet, they are using 20th century technology. Hmmm. Should let professionals do it rather than his crony liberal artists posing as computer scientists.

The Obama administration can shovel the blame around for Benghazi, the NSA debacle, the Irs scandal and so on, but the OBozocare law falls squarely on Odumbo's shoulders. His great triumph, or his resounding failure?

Republicans are telling the truth about Obamacare. It is a disaster, a humiliating, embarrassment. A total failed experiment. A $600 million dollar fiasco that cannot be fixed any time soon. And the stupid President is still singing it's praises like some kind of doo doo bird. Democrats, gotta love em.

You are right, bowbow, ACA will fall squarely on this President. Is that what you guys are so scared of when it proves to be successful?

As I noted then, he accused the GOP seven times of demanding a “ransom,” and of “extortion,” of threatening to “blow the whole thing up” and “burn down your house.” He called them “ideological extremists,” knocked the “Tea Party’s extremist agenda” and said they were prepared to “cause a recession.”
Sounds like this President was agreeing with members of the press, the republicants and regular folks too. So?

We have ben working on the Roll Out of Obamacare for over 3 weeks, and it is a total disaster. When do you think it will turn out well for the President, and his Democrats? 2014? 2016? Don't bet on it. They don't even know exactly what is wrong, but one thing is for sure, they knew there was something wrong long before they dragged it out. That is disgraceful.

They are so stupid they didn't even beta test it for functionality or accuracy. Typical academic clowns.

U.S. IRS struggles to track its 'Obamacare' spending: watchdog
(Reuters)- The U.S. Internal Revenue Service needs to do a better job tracking its spending related to President Barack Obama's new healthcare law, an IRS watchdog said on Wednesday.
With Congress debating whether to take funding away from the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration said in an audit that the IRS failed to account for some of the agency's spending to implement the law.
Federal agencies must report their spending so there is an accurate measure of the full cost of government programs.
The IRS did not report $67 million in costs the agency incurred for employees who were working on the healthcare law for fiscal 2010 through 2012, the report said.
The money was part of $488 million the IRS tapped from a special fund the agency was using to implement Obamacare.
"Funding related to direct labor were sometimes inaccurate and not always substantiated by reliable supporting documentation," TIGTA said.
Funny you should mention this. They haven't fully tracked the 16-day government shutdown yet either, but the last estimate was around $24 BILLION dollars.$67 million going toward the good health of the American people, or $24 BILLION just wasted on political optics. It's my money too, and it seems like a no-brainer choice to me.

"We" refers to tax payer monies that went to another country to build this piece of crap.

(CBS News) CBS News has uncovered a serious pricing problem with HealthCare.gov . It stems from the Obama administration's efforts to improve its health care website. A new online feature can dramatically underestimate the cost of insurance.

The administration announced it would provide a new "shop and browse" feature Sunday, but it's not giving consumers the real picture. In some cases, people could end up paying double of what they see on the website, CBS News' Jan Crawford reported Wednesday on "CBS This Morning." Not seeing anything but failure.

If odoodle and company would have given every tax payer $200,000 instead of the stimulus to banks and unions, we would have jobs, a booming economy, many new cars made and sold, mortgages paid off and credit cards paid off. He would have even bought more votes instead of splitting the country down the middle.

That's the key. The gubmint didn't want us to become independent from debt. They NEED us to be in debt. It's what makes the world go around. Odumbo gave more money to the top 1% er's in the form of increased debt for them to invest in. Ever wonder who the shareholders are for Master, Visa, Discover, Am Ex? Why, they ARE the 1%ers. And Odumbo bailed out every bank that carries them. They didn't lose with defaults, THEY MADE money from it. It's pretty sick when a small group profits from so much misery.

Dems love freedom of choice.
You just can't keep your doctors or your insurance but you can CHOOSE different healthcare plans that makes you choose a new doctor and higher premiums.
Pro-choice, baby!

Most "PROfessional" politicians turn into drama queens at hearings for votes. It's theatre including the use of props which this administration loves.

They shouldn't waste time trying to show off for the voters attempting to stand up to the man. A project like this required a lot of delegation and/or progress reports/meetings. What was in those reports and what information was used or ignored. Same for the formulation of the 900 page bill and 9000 pages of regulations for the ACA. WHO wrote them, who sponsored them, who said ok put them in the bill.

This is what happens when people are elected because they are a color rather then people who have working brain cells. This law was enacted 3 years ago without one Republican vote. Not one. They knew it was an Affirmative
Action debacle, and would fold under it's own weight. I wouldn't put my name on it either. Now the Democrats, and the President look oh so stupid, and thy are all on the run,
