As the disastrous blunders continue to pile up in the wake of the launch of ObamaCare, Americans are learning that there is far more to be angry about than simply a costly and inefficient website. It is becoming clear as the healthcare measure takes effect that many of the president's promises made during the campaign for the law are being broken.
“Even with the issues we've had, the marketplace is working and people are enrolling," happily announced Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on November 13, bizarrely referring to the botched launching of the federal government’s Obamacare website and the official admission that only 26,794 people had managed to sign up for health insurance in October using the troubled HealthCare.gov federal site.
An Obama administration official told a House subcommittee Tuesday that "30 to 40 percent" of the supporting code for the federal ObamaCare website still has to be built.
A Washington State woman cited by President Obama as an example of ObamaCare's success now finds that she cannot afford insurance under the law.
