ObamaCare: Media mislabels Big Problems as “Glitches” to mask Problems

WASHINGTON — The ObamaCare “glitches [1]“, which is the neutering word of choice used by the liberal mainstream media, are not adequately addressing the issue to the American public.

However, his Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is facing calls to resign and has rebuffed calls to appear before Congress to be held accountable. Yet, she has time to meet with late night host Jon Stewart [4] and attend events to promote the failed ObamaCare website in places like Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Even CNN’s Wolf Blitzer suggests delaying ObamaCare’s implementation [5].

The health care law was passed on partisan lines, with only one Republican vote to pass the law (and that Republican has since been voted out of office). The administration had over three years to put the website and online enrollment into place, but rolled out with an underwhelming disaster of a website. “404” error messages were more common than actual successful signups and some reports say less than 1% of online visitors [6] successfully enrolled in ObamaCare.

The administration spent over $634 million [7] for the failed website.

Delaware signed up its first and only enrollee [8] this past week, 20 days after the website was launched, and Michigan has 0 enrollees [9] as of this past weekend. Maryland, one of the more eager states to implement the health care law, has not overcome many of the website’s glaring problems [10].

Now insurance providers are dropping coverage [11] and herding the American people to the ObamaCare, federal or state-run health insurance exchanges. Even ObamaCare supporters are doubting their support, realizing they will have to pay [12] for other’s insurance.

So much for Obama’s statement that the American people will be able to keep their doctor [13].
