Comparing America’s World War II Effort and Obamacare’s Implementation
Posted by Steve Markowitz on November 12, 2013
Blog reader John sent in the below comparison between America’s successful World War II effort and the rollout of Obamacare, both of which involved approximately the same amount of time. While World War II involved significantly more resources, it was a astronomically more complex challenge. Furthermore, the Obamacare implementation process began with a significantly larger federal government and bureaucracy. Then again, that is likely a major cause behind the failed implementation.
March 21, 2010 to October 1, 2013 is 3 years, 6 months, and 10 days.
December 7, 1941 to May 8, 1945 is 3 years, 5 months, and 1 day.
What this means is that in the time from when we were attacked at Pearl Harbor to the day Germany surrendered … is not enough time for the Obama Administration to build a working website.
The World War II effort required the mobilization of millions, building tens of thousands of tanks, planes, jeeps, subs, cruisers, destroyers, torpedoes, millions upon millions of guns, bombs, ammo, etc. America needed to turn the tide in North Africa, invade Italy, the D-Day invasion, and, Race to Berlin — all while fighting the Japanese in the Pacific and rebuilding an entire fleet in Pearl Harbor!!!
Now, in the same amount of time, the Obama Administration (America) can’t build a website that works correctly!!!
Not a pretty comparison.
