WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is trying to paint a prettier picture of the disastrous and failing online enrollment website, which has led to Obama’s lowest job approval ratings of his entire presidency.
Reuters reported that the website gives error pages about 10% of the time, which is a far cry from the administration’s promise that it will be as effective as corporate websites like Amazon.com or Kayak.com.
The government continues to hedge on the actual statistics behind the website, but indicators tell Americans that it is far from complete. The attention on the website has battered the administration from its launch on October 1st of this year, and has become a focal point for Republican criticism.
It got so bad that Obama’s Health and Human Services Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius, had to take out an op-ed in the USA Today to defend the unpopular health care law to plead with Americans to not give up on it.
Obama even said the liberal media, which has supported Obama throughout his presidency with soft pieces, praise and favorable interviews, is too focused on government troubles like ObamaCare.
Now, the Senate Democrats (and even those in the House) are worried this will sink their chances at re-election and blasted Obama behind closed doors last month. The liberal media covers for Obama and blames Republicans for not offering an alternative, the first of which was the “Keep Your Plan” Act.
