White House now sending out “It’s never been a better time to buy Obamacare!” spam.

During this year’s first Democrat Presidential debate, Hillary Clinton said that she was proud to be enemies with “health insurance companies” – putting the insurance industry alongside the NRA, Iran and Republicans on her enemies list. That might be news to Clinton’s campaign staff, which according to Politico Pro, recently held two high-level meetings with the insurance industry to hear – and presumably allay – | Read More »
An audit of Healthcare.gov by the Inspector General of the Department of Health and Human Services has revealed more problems with how the website has operated. Considering all the problems that have been found thus far, this should hardly be surprising, but what has been discovered this time is nevertheless disturbing. Apparently, Healthcare.gov has failed to verify the information submitted by applicants, including citizenship status, | Read More »
Ordinarily you would think that members of Congress would be happy when the federal auditor, the General Accounting Office, reveals that a program is vulnerable to fraud of Biblical proportions. For instance, last year the GAO reported on fake enrollees: The GAO’s account of fictitious applicants obtaining subsidized coverage goes beyond a related problem that surfaced this spring and that the investigators also cited: The | Read More »
So, once you’re in healthcare.gov they’ll apparently renew you even if you’re fake. Charming.Read More »
Barack Obama showed weakness when he even floated the possibility that America would turn our control of ICANN over to other countries. Down in Brazil they’re all over that idea (the anarchists are claiming they want a non-governmental control, but look, in a world with Russia and China, and even the EU countries like Germany having ‘national champions’, that’s not happening). India’s game, too. Republicans, and heck it’d help if Democrats did it to, must signal that the next President will not let this happen.Read More »
The final, desperate days of ObamaCare signup before the individual mandate cutoff date have brought us one national humiliation after another. We had the Administration pretending to be our mothers and ordering us to purchase health insurance: I decided to invest a few moments in correcting this ad for accuracy: The campaign to treat us as a nation of children continues with a new | Read More »
It’s neat how the New York Times is dredging up an old NSA website as news. I guess it beats writing about Obamacare breakins or Benghazi.
And it’s interesting how Democrats don’t seem to want to dig into the Healthcare.gov or Benghazi failures but seem ready to blame Target for crimes against them.
So the Obama administration wants us to believe that taking gun databases from the states is legal, Healthcare.gov is legal, but NSA is illegal. Sure, buddy.Read More »
Why is Amazon winning? It’s not Sales Tax. It’s because Amazon is doing everything they can to combine their great selection with getting your purchases to you as fast as possible. That patent going around for predictive shipping is being reported so terribly. People keep focusing on getting something at your house you didn’t order. That’s not the real point of the patent. Figures 4A-4C of Patent No. 8,615,473 B2 demonstrate the real goal. They want to get items that are likely to be ordered into the networks of their package carriers, down to the local hub or first three digits of ZIP code, then slap on the address of a specific person who did order it, and get the item to the person insanely fast.
I know I’ve harped on this a lot, but it really is a shame that people in favor of sales tax changes have made this all about sticking it to Amazon, because there are legitimate tax reasons to favor taxing interstate purchases. Preserving sales tax revenue that used to be there means not having to raise or implement income taxes in order to get the same revenue per capita.
By the way, Healthcare.gov is horribly, horribly insecure.Read More »
Bitcoin is not really as widely used as its shills want you to think.
Ajit Pai is the man and understand what it means for the courts to be used to quash innovation. As the courts refused to crush the VCR, I want them to leave Aereo alone.
By the way, Healthcare.gov is still at risk. Good thing it’s a miserable failure, though that doesn’t help the poor souls already signed up and at risk in the vulnerable systems.
Democrats want to pass a new law mandating a private-public partnership to track where you and your phone are at all times, in the name of 911 calls. But remind me again how all the Snowden stuff is about privacy and not anti-Americanism and a rollback to 9/10/2001 thinking again. Sure, guys. Sure.Read More »
Oh, dear. This seems… ill-timed. Some technical experts are perplexed at the U.S. government’s plan to switch web hosts for its new health insurance portal, HealthCare.gov, in the midst of an expected last-minute rush to beat a March 31 enrollment deadline for 2014 coverage. Switching hosts is not in and of itself a huge risk if it is done carefully and with lots of preparation, | Read More »
http://www.mlgoodell.webs.com In a hastily called press conference today, former CEO Jeff Bezos announced that Amazon.com would be merging with the U.S. government. “We really had no choice,” Bezos explained. “We needed to revamp our website, but we discovered all the top level programmers, the ‘A Team,’ you might say, were in Washington, improving healthcare.gov. Since our objective has always been to provide the sort of | Read More »
Day 65 of Obamacare’s Healthcare.gov roll-out also known as Day 4 of the President Obama-guaranteed new and improved re-launch produces lesson no. 65 on how not to build and launch a website. The latest “glitch”, around which Democrats have wrapped there’s-nothing-to-see-here-police tape, that “all” president’s lie about and about which Republicans are required to lead cheers lest they be accused of “rooting for failure”, concerns the security | Read More »
As we get back up and running from the Thanksgiving Holiday, the deadline for the Obamacare website has come and gone. CNN was able to get it to crash live on national television. But that’s okay. The Obama Administration got the New York Times to run a full page ad . . . errr . . . they actually called it journalism … claiming that | Read More »
Yesterday morning, a peevish White House adviser, Dan Pfeiffer, snapped under the burden of explaining why President Obama was blowing off the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address. At first he claimed the snub was due to an unavoidable scheduling conflict, but the merest glance at the President’s daily agenda (which his political team sometimes seems to forget is available to the public) showed that | Read More »
