In an attempt to salvage the failed launch of the healthcare law, President Obama is planning an event at the White House in which he will ask hand-picked Americans to go on display to illustrate the alleged benefits of the healthcare law. And in case that does not do a sufficient job of undoing the damage that the healthcare law has done to Obama’s reputation, the White House is laying out plans to bailout insurance companies to help offset the loss of revenue and profit that the industry is experiencing under ObamaCare.
The Obama administration announced Thanksgiving Eve that the federal insurance exchange for small businesses will not be ready to enroll employees until next November, 13 months after it was supposed to be operational.
With the ObamaCare-instigated expansion of Medicaid expected to add almost 10 million more Americans to the government entitlement scheme, the shortage of doctors across the United States is set to get much worse, according to experts and estimates cited in news reports. While analysts have been predicting the looming crisis for years, as the extent of the damage becomes clearer and the escalating shortages accelerate, even reliably pro-ObamaCare media outlets such as the New York Times are now highlighting the disaster. Talk of radical so-called “solutions” has already started, too.
After catching multiple so-called ObamaCare “navigators” on camera urging people to lie on federal forms, Project Veritas released another video exposing more fraud and lawlessness surrounding the healthcare takeover aimed at surreptitiously advancing Big Government. This time, among other scandals, a senior operative with “Enroll America,” an outfit linked to the Obama administration and funded by insurance firms bullied by the White House, was exposed admitting what sounded to analysts like a potential a conspiracy — unlawfully use the private data collected under the new healthcare scheme for pro-Democrat political purposes. Complaints have already been filed with the IRS and the Attorney General of Texas.
Because of ObamaCare, as many as 80 million Americans could receive health-insurance cancellation notices next fall, just in time for the midterm elections.
Cost overruns are the norm for companies assisting in the development of the ObamaCare website, yet they received contracts despite histories of failure, fines, and fraud allegations.
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is once again being called upon to explain the use of taxpayer dollars related to ObamaCare, this time, for health insurance co-ops.
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.
