Obama Care Fiasco in the President’s Own Words
Posted by Steve Markowitz on November 15, 2013
During yesterday’s hour-long news’ conference President Obama was untypically contrite in discussing the catastrophic implementation of his signature legislation often referred to as Obamacare. An important eight minute segment of that conference is included in the video clip below.
Mr. Obama’s responses, although a bit long-winded, are reasonable concerning the problems related to the website, as well as those Americans whose insurance were canceled after the President promised that they could keep their policies. However, missing from the discussion is how a website costing in excess of $200 million did not work. Why did a government with nearly unlimited personnel assets and spending over three years preparing for the implementation of Obama care fail so miserably? These important questions need to be openly discussed as America considers future directions and power of the federal government.
