Carney: Obama 'not happy' with ACA rollout(Posted by Jbird on 10/18/13 at 7:30 am)
White House press secretary Jay Carney said Thursday that President Obama was seeking "accountability" from federal employees working to fix glitches with the ObamaCare website designed to let uninsured Americans purchase coverage.
Carney sidestepped questions about whether the administration would seek to recover any of the millions of dollars paid to contractors responsible for building the healthcare.gov website, which has been plagued by technical errors since its launch earlier this month.
Anyone who thinks the "website" is the issue makes me laugh. That website was thrown together the way it was BECAUSE the back end of the system, the REAL system, is screwed up...and they KNEW this WELL BEFORE launch.

quote: Obama 'not happy' with ACA rollout
Neither are teachers and taxpayers in Arkansas. In this morning's statewide paper Gov. Beebe(D) has called a special session this weekend for the state legislature to approve a bill to transfer $43 million from our reserve fund to the teachers health insurance fund so their premiums will rise only 10% instead of 50% beginning the first of the year.
So instead of using that 43 mil to benefit everyone in the state our politicians are going to use all taxpayer's money to foot the bill. To hell with roads, bridges, etc.
Well that is bull shite. Everyone should be calling the governors office and bitching about the letter next to her name, because her party and it's bull shite has just raped an entire states funding in favor, of I'm sure, teachers unions

This is no different than any other train wreck BO has been a part of. He's never at fault, his staff is never at fault and it's always the fault of some person at least 10 times removed from his staff and cabinet. Plausible deniability is the name of the game for this guy. I'm actually surprised I haven't heard Carney remind us all lately that he got Bin Laden.
