No, No, No - #Obamacare's Site Is Still Far From 'Fixed'Topics: Political News and commentaries
Happy Obamacare-is-supposed-to-work-smoothly-for-a-vast-majority-of-applicants day!— Ezra Klein (@ezraklein) December 1, 2013
That's just wishful liberal optimism! The site is still a turkey.
Via Phillip Klein at The Washington Examiner:
"Healthcare.gov on Dec. 1 is night and day from where it was on Oct. 1," Jeff Zients, who was brought in to oversee fixes to the troubled Obamacare website, declared during a Sunday conference call.Keep reading here ...
But that statement says more about how badly the website was functioning on its launch date than it says about how well the site is functioning now.
Starting in late October, Zients declared that the website, which is supposed to enable residents of 36 states to sign up for insurance through President Obama's health care law, would be functional for a "vast majority" of users by the end of November.
The reason the date was significant is that consumers typically finalize health insurance decisions after Thanksgiving and the deadline for signing up for insurance that becomes effective at the start of 2014 was Dec. 15 (the administration has since delayed this deadline to Dec. 23). This date is especially pressing for those who have had their insurance cancelled as a result of requirements imposed by the health care law.
On Sunday, the Department of Health and Human Services said in a report and on a conference call that it had met its goal for fixing the website.
In reality, there's no reason to believe that this is true.
Ed Henry nailed it at the White House briefing: "It Doesnâ€™t Sound Like ObamaCare Website Is Actually Fixed"
And as the very liberal Ezra Klein wrote in the very liberal Washington Post ... sorry liberals, Obamacare's problems go much deeper than the Web site
