Oct 23 Katherine Sebelius says; President Barack Obama didn't hear that there may be problems with the sign-up portal for his signature health care law until it went live on October 1
Oct 29- Katherine Sebelius says "... we had tested the website and we were comfortable with its performance,” she said. “Now, like I said, we knew all along there would be as with any new website, some individual glitches we would have to work out. But, the volume issue and the creation of account issues was not anticipated...).*
Nov 13 Nancy Pelosi claims nearly 5 times as many people signed up for Obamacare than HHS numbers show.
Nov 14 Debbie Wasserman Shultz says;“You’re darn right that our candidates are going to run on the advantage that Obamacare will be going into the 2014 election."
Nov 14 Obama: "I was not informed directly that the website would not be working the way it was supposed to. I’m accused of a lot of things. I don’t think I’m stupid enough to go around saying this is going to be like shopping on Amazon or Travelocity a week before the website opens if I thought that it wasn’t going to work."**
Nov 17 Nancy Pelosi: What we are talking about is affordable, quality, accessible health care for all Americans. It`s about choice. If you like what you have and you want to keep it, you have the choice to do that.
While the mainstream press is finally doing it's job by reporting the outright lie that, "You can keep your plan if you like it" (and of course President Obama turns to his stock excuse, "I didn't know" and/or "wasn't told"), the truth is there is nary an aspect of ObamaCare that was not lied about. Not only will your individual plan be canceled , but the replacement plan will increase in price 50-100%. Further since the different levels of ObamaCare plans are the same, the differences are with the deductibles, which are now high as $6,350 for individuals and $12,700 for families, the highest levels allowed under the law; so those that can only afford the cheapest plans will pay the most for their healthcare; and the subsidies (some one else's money) will do little to help as they only cover the premiums, not the deductible. One wonders if the Democrats will finally be punished by the electorate for being complicit with the big lie that is ObamaCare.
*... the Obama administration refused to delay the implementation of the exchanges, despite the well-known problems, because they were afraid of the political blowback. “Former government officials say the White House, which was calling the shots, feared that any backtracking would further embolden Republican critics who were trying to repeal the health care law.” Obamacare's Website Is Crashing Because It Doesn't Want You To Know How Costly Its Plans Are
**"They had been claiming that the Obamacare rollout was his top priority and that he was receiving regular updates, which was inaccurate. And he gave remarks on October 1 about how great it was and that people should go sign up," the aide said. "Assuming that he didn't know that the website didn't work, why did they let him make that speech when they knew it had crashed in testing? Did really no one recommend a delay to the President? It just seems odd." Sebelius: Obamacare Website Problems Blindsided the President
