The Web Site is Bad, But the Real ‘Glitch’ is ObamaCare Supporter Ann Kirkpatrick
WASHINGTON – While the implementation of ObamaCare has been a “train wreck” for most of the year, it wasn’t until the law’s site was overrun with technical glitches that Americans saw what a fiasco it really was.
As Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius travels to Capitol Hill tomorrow to make excuses for the failures, it’s clear there’s really only one way to fix the “glitches” once and for all. If we want to stop ObamaCare, we must start with firing Ann Kirkpatrick. Kirkpatrick supports the law that raised premiums, cut Medicare, and put bureaucrats between patients and their doctors.
“The web site is bad, but the real ‘glitch’ in ObamaCare is Ann Kirkpatrick,” said NRCC Communications Director Andrea Bozek. “Kirkpatrick voted to keep ObamaCare on the books. If Arizona families want to stop this madness, they can start with firing Ann Kirkpatrick.”
Ann Kirkpatrick Voted Against Repealing ObamaCare. (H.R. 45, Roll Call Vote #154, 229-195, 5/16/13)
Health And Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius Admitted That ObamaCare Will Raise Health Insurance Premiums. “Some people purchasing new insurance policies for themselves this fall could see premiums rise because of requirements in the health-care law, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told reporters Tuesday.” (Louise Radnofsky, “Sebelius: Some Could See Insurance Premiums Rise,” The Wall Street Journal, 3/26/13)
ObamaCare’s Exchange Website Has Been Plagued By Repeated “Crashes” and “Slow Response Times.” “The website has been mired in problems since going live Oct. 1, including crashes, slow response times and failing to allow customers to complete the online process by purchasing health insurance.” (“Administration responding to pressure for answers on messy ObamaCare site,” FOX News, 10/21/13)
The Site Has Cost Triple The Original Estimate. “The government contract for the company that built the glitch-prone website for Obamacare has ballooned to three times its original cost, and some Republicans are demanding the resignation of the cabinet secretary who oversees it.” (Tom Costello and Erin McClam, “Obamacare Glitches: Gov’t Contract For Troubled Site Has Swelled; GOP Targets Sebelius,” NBC News, 10/18/13)
