We are facing virtual Armageddon, the Republic may not survive. It started out as a full frontal assault on America and apple pie, but the situation is even now dire: there is a website on the Internet that is slow to load, it often times out and, worst of all, it is taken down for maintenance on a weekly basis. But some people are getting through:
TPM — Administration officials say about 476,000 health insurance applications have been filed through federal and state exchanges, the most detailed measure yet of the problem-plagued rollout of President Barack Obama’s signature legislation.
However, the officials continue to refuse to say how many people have actually enrolled in the insurance markets. Without enrollment figures, it’s unclear whether the program is on track to reach the 7 million people projecting by the Congressional Budget Office to gain coverage during the six-month sign-up period.
Obama’s advisers say the president has been frustrated by the flawed rollout. During one of his daily health care briefings last week, he told advisers assembled in the Oval Office that the administration had to own up to the fact that there were no excuses for not having the website ready to operate as promised.
Obviously, if a slow website will destroy the nation, we have way bigger national problems than Obamacare. Judging by my Amazon order status page and a software update in progress, we’re finished. That’s not an accident either, it was all planned lo these many years ago!
On the bright side, Ted Cruz’s shutdown jihad lent us critical cover to perpetrate the attack. His great personal sacrifice will be duly honored, one day, when atheists run America, when dogs are sleeping with cats, and when the last stars and stripes is burning to cinders in the nation’s once proud heartland. Having spent the morning watching Teaparty clowns explain that servicing our debt is choking the nation to death, but pretending it doesn’t exist and missing an interest payment would be no big deal at all, the above makes as much or more sense as anything else.
