Sebelius: We Didn’t Test ObamaCare Website Because Of The Republicans

“In an ideal world there would have been a lot more testing. We did not have the luxury of that with a law that said it’s go time on October 1st and frankly a political atmosphere where the majority party at least in the House was determined to stop this any way they possibly could including shutting down the United States government. So it was not an ideal atmosphere.”

Why hasn’t this woman been fired yet?

Kathleen Sebelius still has a job, but this woman got fired:

    Arrogant, condescending & stupid — she fits right in with the vile prog administration. I absolutely LOVED the part where she said she “doesn’t work for the people who are complaining” about Obamacare. This moron — in charge of 1/6th of the American economy — doesn’t even know she works for the American people, not “King” Obama.

    Also, did you see that arrogant, condescending prick Ezekiel Emmanuel (Rahm’s brother & the “architect.” (Helenk posted a link in the previous thread). Unfuckingbelievable that someone like that is allowed *any* power. No wonder Obamacare is the shit sandwich that it is.

      He’s such a dick. Sure, point out the obvious after everyone has already piled on. So brave.

        True story.

        Maher has no clue as to why the website doesn’t work . The state participation has nothing to do with badly written code and horrible php cgi scripts that don’t function properly .
        Code is code and written in several different “languages” and server capacity is completely unrelated to code . It has to be exactly correct to work , just like it does here on the CH Word Press page . Leave out one little letter or symbol and you get a different result . “The atmosphere” doesn’t influence code ,server capacity or any other tech application.

        Blaming Republicans is such an egregious piece of bull it is mind boggling .
        And this morning on Up Obama’s Butt With Steve Kornacki , he is telling people that the rollout of the PEACE CORP has “glitches” too, because one member sent a postcard critical of the country to which she was assigned , but that eventually it all worked out anyway. These people are beyond belief .

          Ironically, the states without exchanges should make it easier because that data could be inside the primary database. Except that Obamacare wanted to pawn off all their troubles to state exchanges and just be a portal.

        • lyn says:

          ^This^ This administration has the most immature bunch of babies. I cannot believe anyone, including Obama’s media cheerleaders, can blame the Republicans with a straight face. The failure of the Obamacare Web site rests solely with Obama and his cronies.

        • Lulu says:

          The administration and Dems wanted the states to bear the brunt of the cost, do all the work, and be “blamable” if it all went tits up. In Texas they did a work up of costs including projected costs into the future. Supposedly many people in Austin nearly fainted. The costs were about same as the health and welfare budget for numerous European countries. It was thoroughly evaluated (Texas has health care experts including economists too, they are not all at Harvard) and determined to be the worst possible way to provide access to health care for any part of a population. It is that bad.

        • DandyTIger says:

          It’s 2013, there’s no excuse for these pundits and anchors and congresscritters not to know how the internet works and how websites work. They don’t have to be programmers, but they should know the basics. Imagine if when they talked about problems with car recalls, they talked about cars ability to go in terms of magic, witches cauldrons, and spells.

        • fif says:

          We all know they are not trying to be factual and accurate – their only intention is to deflect blame. We have seen it constantly since 2008: unbelievable incompetence followed by demonization of the enemy (whoever it is a the time). Cultists will believe anything.

        • Monster from the Id says:

          Unbelievable incompetence by the corrupt imbeciles of the ruling major party followed by the demonization of their alleged adversaries in the “opposition” major party did not begin in 2008.

          It’s at least as old as 9/11/2001. 👿

    Testing is not a luxury. Not in software development, not in drug development, not manufacturing, not in cooking, not in anything in the real world. You have to know if it works.
    But in legislating and government – yeah, testing, who needs it? Just clap your hands and believe.

    • Lulu says:

      I heard a reporter for The Hill categorically state that the WH told her that they were “worn out” from the passage of this mess. It took so much effort and dirty stunts that the WH and Congressional Dems did not want to think about it for a while. They were sick of it. So time passes with nothing done and BEHOLD it is time for another election. So they concentrate on that and hide what is going on or rather not going on with the implementation. So nothing is done but hand it off to Center for Medicare and Medicaid and IRS who haven’t done anything like this before, no supervision except political and to hide the horrors of the law until after the election. They win the election by withholding information and doing nothing, and coasting. Then the implementation is on the horizon and they freak out. Hurry up, changes, political decisions and it is not anywhere near ready. I think they were going to delay it. UNTIL Cruz and Lee force their hand to either admit it isn’t ready and a nightmare or bullshit their way along. Obama always chooses bullshit. Now they can’t hide it and they are screwed. And so are we. We were screwed when the Dems passed it so now we know it for sure.

      • votermom says:

        Cram before the test, coast the rest of the semester.
        Behavior I try hard to correct in my kids.
        I guess Dems can blame this on poor parenting. 🙄

        • Lulu says:

          Undisciplined, spoiled, elitist, think they are the smartest people in the universe, too dumb to know what they don’t know, contemptuous of those less fortunate than they are, etc. It is pure laziness and hubris. These are some of the worst human beings I have ever heard of. Completely worthless.

      • 1539days says:

        The “I won” effect. Apparently, the Democrats just rolled over and went to sleep and gave some sketchy Canadian company cab fare.

        • Lulu says:

          That company was smart enough to hire Michelle’s pal who knows the pay to play game. I look forward to that being explored.

      • Constance says:

        But the Dems had good intentions when they passed the law and besides think of the children and Republicans are mean and hateful. Everything else is irrelevant in the Progressive mind.

  4. The Klown says:

    The Obamacare software “glitches” are a free-standing, self-inflicted clusterfuck by the Obama administration. The “glitches” are not what is wrong with Obamacare. The ‘glitches” were not caused by Obamacare. The “glitches” were not caused by the GOP either.

    I assume they will eventually work out most of the “glitches”. Then the real fun and games begin.

    (The Titanic had a “glitch”. The Hindenburg had a “glitch”. Obamacare is a fucking disaster.)

    • votermom says:

      It’s the inevitable result of out of control pay to play corruption.

      We see this in 3rd world shitholes – new bridges & building that collapse, brand new stuff that doesn’t work. Because the bids go to those with the best connections & biggest bribes. And they make teh money back by pocketing the funds and cutting edges.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Exactly. The problems with the website are pathetic, but they can be fixed with enough resources and some time. They are a symptom of severe incompetence and corruption. Which makes for a lovely and obvious sign of things to come. The real question becomes, how bad will it be, and how will they boldface lie that it isn’t, and how much will the MSM cover for it? People will notice, but if no one covers them noticing, how will that go?

      • Lulu says:

        I think the people of Chicago (and Illinois) are conditioned to accept this kind of corruption and incompetence. Some parts of the rest of the country are also but far from all of it. States that declined setting up exchanges and expansion of Medicaid smelled a rat and knew it was a bad corrupt deal. The same goes for insurers would declined to participate in the exchanges knew it was going really bad. The green energy debacle and health insurance scam were to take the corruption and rent seeking nation wide. Anyone who is defending this mess, making excuses or even passively accepting it like the party hack Republicans are for it and are part of the scam and they need to understand that we are on to them.

      This is basic Pascal’s Wager stuff. There is so much more upside to staying sober that there’s almost no reason to get drunk. Why get drunk?

      You would think that feminists would want women to boycott parties designed to put as much booze as possible into everyone. But then that would make feminism less palitable.

      • votermom says:

        But then the feminist movement thrives on victims with low-self-esteem, so they intentionally push behaviors that create that. They prefer women who have been raped, who have had abortions, because then they can tell the women that the reason they feel crappy – “it’s all the fault of the menz so give us money to fight the patriarchy.”

    • helenk3 says:

      why are todays feminists against self respect for women? For some reason they think that a woman is no more than a receptical for passing penises and should be happy being that. Men must love todays feminists.

      • wmcb says:

        It makes me ill. They are all about whining and guilting prog boys into protecting and saving them anymore. We went from “I will go out there and compete and kick some ass” to “Daddddy, make the boys be fake-nice to meeee!”

      • The message coming across to me is: “I am WOMAN. You must ALWAYS treat me better than I treat myself. And then thank me for allowing you to use me.”
