Obama Care Fiasco in the President’s Own Words

Posted by Steve Markowitz on November 18, 2013

During last week’s hour-long news’ conference President Obama was untypically contrite in discussing the catastrophic implementation of his signature legislation referred to as Obamacare.  An important eight minute segment of that conference is included in the video clip below.

Mr. Obama’s responses, although long-winded, are reasonable concerning problems related to the website, as well as those Americans who’s insurance was canceled after the President promised they could keep their policies.  However, missing from the discussion is how a website costing in excess of $200 million did not work in the first place.  Why did a government with nearly unlimited assets and spending with over three years on preparation fail so miserably at implementation?  These important questions need to be openly discussed as America considers future directions and power of the federal government.
