CBS News: Man Tries For Week to Sign Up For ObamaCare With No Success


By Noel Sheppard | October 9, 2013 | 00:30

 
The CBS Evening News aired a stunning report Tuesday about a Dallas man that’s been trying for a week to sign up for ObamaCare and still has not been successful.

“I don’t accept the excuse of saying the system is just overloaded,” he said (video follows with transcript and commentary):




SCOTT PELLEY, HOST: One week after the debut of the most visible part of ObamaCare, the health insurance exchanges, Americans are still having trouble signing up. The main government website was shut down overnight for another upgrade, but the problems persist. We asked Anna Werner to have a look.

ANNA WERNER: It’s been a frustrating week for Matt Warren in Dallas. He’s still fighting his way through the registration process on Healthcare.gov to find out how much a plan will cost his family.

MATT WARREN: I don’t accept the excuse of saying the system is just overloaded. Perhaps it was overloaded, but I wish it would have been built to withstand that load.

WERNER: Many of the site’s eight million visitors could not log in, had long waits, or were stopped cold by error messages. The site was supposed to handle traffic from 30 million people in 36 states.

The two minute segment did end on a bright note with a Brooklyn shoe designer being able to purchase insurance at the New York state exchange.

However, it sure was fascinating to see CBS actually tell viewers that someone has tried for a full week to sign up at the national exchange without any success.

You know, one could think it's patriots trying to overload and crash the system. 
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

WHAT IF EVERYONE JUST STOPPED?   --- - and said "NO We The People are not doing this and we are taking this Freedom Back".   

If The Republicans can't defund it, and they can't, Then use the Nuclear Option - a whole Nation  boycot of Obamacare

Yes, it's possible that some folks have suggested doing just that ...   :whistle:

If everyone did that, Ali Bama would probably shutdown the sewer systems which are already befouled with his dookie. :Obounce:

Ebay works. Amazon works. Dozens of very high volume websites have worked for years.

The United States federal government has grown to an incompetent, inept monster. Obama is the ugly head of the monster.

Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!
