With the White House now hinting agreement with the Republicans who called for a delay in penalizing individuals under the ObamaCare mandate, the disastrous rollout of Barack Obama’s singular signature piece of legislation passed during his presidency can be summed up in one military term (or acronym): FUBAR*.
Notwithstanding the fact that the mainstream media has been near-unanimously stuck on declaring that healthcare.gov’s problems were caused by a mere “glitch,” everything about ObamaCare’s rollout, thus far, has proved to be a disaster of epic proportions. It has lived down to the most dire warnings of becoming a “third-world experience.”
When critics claimed that ObamaCare would cause people to lose their employer-sponsored coverage and that prices would skyrocket, they were heckled and jeered. It turns out, though, they were right.
Despite Obama’s promises to the contrary, millions of Americans are, in fact, losing their health insurance and, based on this chart, most others are seeing their healthcare costs soar.
In addition to the Administration also trying to hide how many people have actually signed up on the healthcare.gov, CBS News has uncovered a serious pricing problem on the Obamacare site.
…A new online feature can dramatically underestimate the cost of insurance.
The administration announced it would provide a new “shop and browse” feature Sunday, but it’s not giving consumers the real picture. In some cases, people could end up paying double of what they see on the website, CBS News’ Jan Crawford reported Wednesday on “CBS This Morning.” [Emphasis added.]
To make matters worse, in addition to the Obama Administration enlisting ACORN, SEIU and other union allies to become ObamaCare “navigators” at up to $48 per hour, it turns out that many of them haven’t even been certified on how to navigate a Prius let alone ObamaCare.
This is only further complicated by the fact that “cyber squatters” are hijacking private, personal information, according to the Washington Times:
More than 700 websites have been created with names playing off of Obamacare or Healthcare.gov, making it likely that some Americans will mistakenly hand over private information to unknown third-parties.
With all that has happened in the first days of the ObamaCare rollout, it appears that the military term SNAFU will become the norm under ObamaCare.
However, it wasn’t like we didn’t know it was coming, right?
No wonder Jon Stewart is upset.
