|President liar, liar pants on fire|
* If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.
* If you like your health insurance plan, you can keep your health insurance plan. [this one turned out to be the Politifact lie of the year]
* The healthcare.gov web site will be up and running by Oct. 1, 2013.
* Buying health insurance from healthcare.gov will be as easy as buying something from kayak.com or buying a TV from Amazon.com.
* The healthcare.gov web site will now [second self imposed deadline] be vastly improved and ready to go by Dec.1.
Yes, all statements made by this administration and even made by the emperor, I mean the president, himself. All provable lies. All reasons why president Obama's approval numbers and trustworthy numbers are at the lowest point of his presidency. All reasons why president Obama is at this early date is a de facto lame duck president.
And yet, that is not the end. While the Obama administration had touted that the healthcare.gov was vastly improved and ready to go on their self imposed second deadline, that turned out not to be the case as it turned out the back end of the web site was not ready to go. Some could say the back end is the most important end as it is where the purchaser of health care makes the payments and where those payments could then be received by the health insurance companies. It is also proof that the purchaser has enrolled in a plan and would be clearly on the books with the health insurance companies. So, without that functional, you can imagine the total chaos to follow. And that is what has been happening.
The importance of the back end of the web site to make payments was acknowledged by an administrator of the healthcare web site, Henry Chao, who also acknowledged on November 19, 2013 that this back-end payment portion of healthcare.gov had yet to be built:
It was acknowledged by Kathleen Sebelius, HHS Secretary on December 11, 2013 that there were still problems [i.e., not built yet] with the back end of the healthcare.gov web site. She promised before Congress that the back end of the health care exchange web site would be ready by mid- January.
Well friends, it is past mid-January and is the health care exchange web site fully functional including the back end where payments can be made and transferred to the health insurance companies? No!
Fox News has just [January 22, 2014] obtained information that the Obama administration is concerned about the yet to be fixed back end of the health care web site and: "it privately fears that problems with the plan's website puts 'the entire health insurance industry at risk.'" And that means if it puts the entire health insurance industry at risk, it also [pray to God] puts Obamacare itself at risk.
That is a very important breaking news get by the Fox News Channel and it has revealed just another big lie in the Obamacare saga [that the back end of the web site would be fixed by mid-January].
Here is Charles the great Krauthammer's take on the disaster awaiting Obamacare taken from Bret Baier's superlative Special Report's panel on Wednesday night, January 22, 2014:
Is this the beginning of the end of Obamacare...we can only pray.
