Nepotism in the WH
Just when you think you've heard it all, there's another news story that tops it all. Today's message is that the person hired to create the ObamaCare web site is an old friend and classmate of none other than a college roommate of FLOTUS. It seems Michelle is the person who gave a no-bid contract to her old friend.
The dictionary defines "Nepotism" as: "the practice among those with power or influence of favoring relatives or friends, esp. by giving them jobs. favoritism, preferential treatment, the old boy network, looking after one's own, bias, partiality, partisanship. ANTONYMS impartiality."
If the shoe fits, wear it!
There's also a good reason why the roll-out failed. When ObamaCare wannabes found out that the original web site would allow people to peruse prices, they were scared to death. They knew that if young people could determine that the rates were skewed against them, they would NOT sign up. Hence, they decided to change the whole sign-up process. Unfortunately, they never tested it and now it's a big mess.
The bottom line is this; ObamaCare is not going to be friendly to young people or to seniors. Actually, seniors have already lost $1/2 BILLION already from Medicare in order to pay for the people who don't pay. This in-turn, creates a shortage of doctors and limits the kinds and types of treatments offered to people over age 65. Cancer patients will be stalled for treatments until they literally die waiting.
What happens if no one signs up? Will ObamaCare implode under it's own weight? Time will only tell. One can only hope.
