Healthcare insurance executives were received at the White House today — but not to confront President Obama about the flub-ridden exchange launched on Oct. 1.

Instead, the CEOs of Aetna, Humana, CareFirst, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida, Health Net, Inc., Health Care Services Corporation, Independence Blue Cross, America’s Health Insurance Plans, Molina Healthcare, Centene Corp., Tufts Health Plan, Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, Wellpoint and Kaiser Permanente got to meet with Obama’s senior adviser Valerie Jarrett.

Meanwhile, on the Hill, Pelosi brushed off the tech implosion as something they just have to be able to fix because she doesn’t want to consider extending the individual mandate deadline.
Pelosi grew increasingly frustrated when reporters kept hammering her with Obamacare questions, as she’d called the presser to lay out Democrats’ plans for a budget agreement before Thanksgiving.

“There certainly is accountability internally in terms of what decisions were made when and all of this, but I think that our focus and energy should be used to fix it because the American people are depending on it, and it’s going to be a beautiful thing in their lives to have that freedom of — I keep talking about life — a healthier life, liberty, the freedom to pursue their happiness, not chained to a policy but — but able to follow their passion,” she said. “

Valerie Jarrett met with the CEO's?  Obama sent out his "Mommie" to talk with them?
Such a coward! 
Truthfully, the most important thing in life is knowing what the most important things in life are, and prioritizing them accordingly.   Melchor Lim

Does anyone, any longer expect Obama to ever voluntarily place himself in a position where he might have to accept personal responsibility for anything that goes wrong?

Why has Trump done scores of interviews on Fox and virtually nowhere else the last two months? Because he’s not interested in winning over undecideds, independents, or swing voters — you know the sort of thing serious presidential candidates do. No, he’s reselling the same product to people who’ve already bought it so he can take the customers with him after the election.

Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

I love the graciously regal tone of the headline.

"Allows" indeed!
Before you bitch about the youth of today ... think about who raised them.
