From the article ""The president needs to man up, find out who was responsible, and fire them," Nolan said."

Starting with HIMSELF!!!

What morons would implement a system of this magnitude without an extensive test??? Oh, the US GOVERNMENT, of COURSE.

What they are saying is this software is not even BETA test level and it was unleased on the American public.

We have said here day and night for the last several years: Obamacare is an unmitigated disaster of EPIC BIBLICAL PROPORTIONS! MASSIVE, UNDENIABLE: FAIL!

"Just imagine an undisciplined out-of-control spender whose credit limit has just been extended. In other words, they can continue overspending without any accountability. That “they” is the U.S. government.

It’s been almost a week since Congress reached a temporary deal to suspend the U.S. government’s debt ceiling and the Treasury department has already wasted no time by adding another $375 billion in new debt.

Suspension of a cap on U.S. debt, which was previously fixed at $16.69 trillion, means the Treasury department, headed by Jack Lew, can effectively spend whatever amount of money it needs or wants.

How much debt can the U.S. government rack up by the next debt ceiling deadline on Feb. 7, 2014? At the current spending pace of $375 billion per week, U.S. public debt would reach $22.70 trillion.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! $22 TRILLION DEBT BY EARLY FEB 2014 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SO Barack may be the $22 TRILLION dollar MAN???

The debt was about $10.4 Trillion when he took office that would be $12 TRILLION more debt in 61 months!!

That is MORE money than the COMBINED SUM TOTAL of ALL 43 presidents from George Washington THROUGH George BUSH!

More debt than was accumulated by the US in the Civil War, Spanish American, WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Gulf War I, Gulf War II!!!

The development of everthing from the Hoover****through the Atomic Bomb throught the SPACE PROGRAM! COMBINED!!

IMPEACH this BAS***D while we still have a country left to FILE impeachment chargess.

If $12 TRILLION in new debt in 5 years ISN'T HIGH CRIMES and MISDEMEANORS, I don't know what IS????????

"While the Affordable Care Act was making its way through Congress in 2009 and 2010, President Obama famously promised the American people over and over again that if you like your health plan, you can keep it.

“Let me be exactly clear about what health care reform means to you,” Obama said at one rally in July 2009. “First of all, if you’ve got health insurance, you like your doctors, you like your plan, you can keep your doctor, you can keep your plan. Nobody is talking about taking that away from you.”

So, how many years since the Obama care law passed? How many years does it take to get a none working webb sight to not work properly? Any one with a brain can clearly see this was not an accident. If this disaster is not part of a thought out plan to crash the country and "change" the Govt., then it shows the total inept running of the Govt. What other Govt. program has taken so many years to set up a system to sign up on? Please, anyone. Name one.

The collapse of ObamaCare is the tip of the iceberg for the magical Obama presidency.

"From the moment he emerged in the public eye with his 2004 speech at the Democratic Convention and through his astonishing defeat of the Clintons in 2008, Barack Obama's calling card has been credibility. He speaks, and enough of the world believes to keep his presidency afloat. Or used to.

All of a sudden, from Washington to Riyadh, Barack Obama's credibility is melting.

Amid the predictable collapse the past week of's too-complex technology, not enough notice was given to Sen. Marco Rubio's statement that the chances for success on immigration reform are about dead. Why? Because, said Sen. Rubio, there is "a lack of trust" in the president's commitments. "

Message from Barry to Harry and Nancy:

"Not to worry about the problems that the ACA will cause; we told the minions that we would give them a health care plan and when we exempted ourselves they didn't ask why, we can persuade them that it is a work-in-progress and that they must keep voting Democrat because they believe it when we tell them that the Republican haters on the other side want to throw granny over the cliff; and besides I don't have to worry about re-election, have free healthcare for life, and couldn't care less about those uneducated voters anyway".

"If it makes you feel better I'll have Jay C tell the media that the voters must be patient with this health care thing, because, make no mistake and have no doubt, I am the great Obama and no one is more unhappy about this (your distrust in me) than I am." "I am the great community organizer and you can be sure that I'll tell the voter what they want to hear".

HillaryCare failed to get out of the gate, ObamaCare is stumbling badly as Obama's spokespeople try every conceivable excuse for its failure to launch.

Is it Obama's Dud or maybe Obama's unguided Scud?

"A member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee said Wednesday that he is concerned that the problems tied to the Obamacare rollout are just the tip of the iceberg.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger, Illinois Republican, said on MSNBC’s “Jansing & Co” that the $500 million that it cost to build the website and the additional money it will cost to repair it should raise some eyebrows.

“I think there is a real concern right now of ‘Look, yeah, I get that it’s just a website, but this is the first part of a bigger rollout. If the website can’t be done correctly, what else is going to follow?’ I think Americans have legitimate questions and legitimate concerns,” Mr. Kinzinger said."

$500 MILLION for a WEBSITE????????

Holy {censored}!!

But Im sure your comments in 2005 were similar when the Medicare Part D was launched?

"After all, when President Bush's Medicare prescription drug program nearly crashed and burned in late 2005 and early 2006, Democrats in Washington and in the states stepped in to save it.

As Americans should recall, the Bush administration rollout of the Medicare drug benefit for 43 million elderly Americans was a disaster. Ohio Congressman John Boehner admitted as much to Fox News in February 2006 when he lamented that two years after its passage, "The implementation of the Medicare plan has been horrendous." As Ezra Klein recently recounted, in his rare moment of candor the future Speaker was right:

In 2006, the bill went into effect. It was a disaster. Computer systems didn't communicate with one another. Seniors were confused. Some of the poorest and sickest enrollees -- "dual eligibles" who qualify for aid under both Medicare and Medicaid -- weren't able to get their drugs."

"It was so bad that in his 2006 State of the Union address, Bush "said nothing about the new Medicare prescription drug program, an initiative Republicans once hoped to trumpet but has angered many seniors in its implementation," reported the Washington Post."

Can you see any differences in the two roll-outs?

Dems and the States saved that program, they didnt force a government shutdown AND something tells me President Obama will have no problem sharing his thoughts about Obamacares during his State of the Union. Think?

Lets just hope at the State of the Union, the opposition will act a little more civil in front of the world stage and not set another new pathetic low by having a juvenile outburst and calling the President a liar during the session.

Nooseman, flailing around in excrement as usual.

Did anybody's insurance company DROP THEM because of it?? NO

Did the IRS FINE anybody if they did NOT participate? NO

The DEMOCRATS opposed the Prescription drug plan because:

1) the EVIL GENIUS BUSH co-opted the DEMS premiere vote-buying SCAM, HEALTHCARE BENEFITS for FREEEEEEEE!

2) DEMS claimed Bush program was NOT ENOUGH MONEY, they wanted TRIPLE the Bush amount!!!
