Published by under Obamacare

A very bad impression: Just 12% of people questioned in a CBS News poll released Tuesday say they think the process is going well, with nearly half saying it’s not going well and nearly […]

Published by under Obamacare

Update: Ed Morrissey calls BS on Obama and his lame excuses: The story proves that the White House has spun a false narrative about the failures, an abjectly political spin that wants to take credit for demand on a site they made mandatory for tax compliance.  The failures exist even under the lightest traffic, which […]

GOP Needs To Hold The Line

  Major Update: Ezra Klein interviews someone directly familiar with Obamacare’s technical issues, and he confirms my predictions  – this is not going to get fixed soon: So I think some of the problem is the Obama administration never brought in heavyweight IT people to oversee this.

Dems Begin Folding As Petulant Adminstration Partially Opens Parks, With State Taxpayer Money!

So much for the lame Democrat excuse that piece-wise opening of the government is a bad thing.  Remember Harry Reid lambasting Dana Bash for considering the idea of opening the government one in stages!

What Can We Learn From Shutown Theater & Obamacare’s Failed Debut?
