Predictable: Obamacare Website Crashes on Deadline Day!

-By Warner Todd Huston

Monday, December 23 was supposed to be deadline day for Obamacare, the day when everyone in the country was supposed to have signed up for Obamacare. But for many who were trying to do so, a crashed website turned out to be the Christmas gift that wouldn’t stop giving.

Apparently the many months of constant “fixes” didn’t help put the website on stable footing so that last minute insurance hunters could scoot in under the law’s deadline.

Obama has spent billions of tax dollars selling this failed website and hundreds of millions on faulty website code-writers who have not been able to get much of the site in working order.

Worse, Obama had years to get this all taken care off, yet even as the deadline came and went he had his web staff making changes to code trying desperately to make this ineffective website work.

But all users got were error messages even as they tried to follow the law.

Since this massive debacle was visited upon the nation, the sign up deadline was quietly extended another day.

It won’t matter though. The fact is the majority of the county has not signed up for Obamacre and even many who did will find out come January that they really don’t have insurance because the Obamacare system is such a mess that insurance companies never got consumers’ information.

Millions will have a big surprise come next year when they are informed that they don’t have insurance when they thought they did.

It’s all a PR nightmare, says Politico.

“Obama’s personal credibility with the American public has tumbled since the website launch,” Politico reports. And rightfully so, I might add.

Public opinion of Obamacare continues to fall and things will get even worse in 2014 when hundreds of thousands of medium and large businesses will be forced by Obamacare to dump their insurance policies for employees.

It is a mess that is of Obama’s own making. He should have it hung around his neck like an albatross. And DO remember this when you go to vote in the 2014 midterms, America.
