red5ish: I wouldn't be surprised if the scammers are Republicans, attempting to cause more trouble. They have been known to do this kind of thing.

coeyagi: Ok, so derp. If someone f*cks up at the FDA and a drug gets recalled because they didn't do their job in scrutinizing clinical trial data, Obama should resign / be impeached / admit blame?


Of course.  Obama should resign / be impeached / admit blame every time anything happens.

As a devoted liberal, I've been offering a service for protection from Obamacare scammers, free of charge.

I can sign you up as well.  Either post here or email me your name, DOB, SSN, and one valid credit card number and billing address for proof of identification purposes.  A scan of a driver's license or other photo ID is helpful and speeds up the process, but not necessary.

ole prophet: Fold your hand, admit it was a mistake to call, and live play another hand.


Democrats don't listen to this guy's "concern", double down and say it would have been a flawless release if not for the republican shutdown. In 2013 in the world of politics you absolutely do not say anything that does not 100% push whatever agenda you are trying to move. Republicans learned this around the early 90s with Rush Limbaugh. Democrats can't seem to get it they get all embarrassed and ashamed when they are wrong, like they are little kids at a spelling bee or something.

Otto_E_Rodika: Headso: Elegy: Show me the private sector major release that invested half a billion dollars in a system that doesn't work.


Myspace was founded in 2003 and was acquired by News Corporation in July 2005 for $580 million?

So it was released 2 years after it was founded?  And how much did the failure of Myspace cost the US taxpayer?  Obamacare is the biggest social engineering clusterfark in the history of the republic.  Stop defending it and start fixing it.


It's farked up only because of the republican shutdown.

Mithiwithi: Headso: Democrats should just say the reason the sites aren't working well is because of the republican shutdown.

The more subtle version, which I have seen, is "the sites aren't working well because they were contracted out to private firms". Not everything can be spun as anti-Republican, but if that fails, it can always be spun as pro-big-government.

/my own spin is "it's a huge system designed to serve tens of millions of end users and interface with dozens of disparate partners whose core competency isn't technology, with little opportunity for advance testing; it's a wonder it worked at all on release".


And so, much like the bill itself, a half baked POS is all we get for 600 Million dollars. Nice job.

your own spin is too complicated, by the 8th word people are thinking about what they are having for dinner while you finish the rest of the sentence. "It's because republicans shutdown the government" is short and sweet and then the republicans can have their say and then the media can report both sides of the story without actually looking for the truth because reporting the truth can appear like bias.
