Reid’s Justification For New Obamacare Signup Delay: ‘People Are Not Educated On How To Use The Internet

 

 

 

 

” It’s not that HealthCare.gov is a nightmare. Instead, it’s the fault of incompetent Americans.

  That’s the jist of what Senate majority leader Harry Reid (D–Nev.) said today, when asked by a reporter about the Obama administration’s decision, which was reported on last night, that people could claim they had tried to sign up before the March 31st deadline and still enroll in Obamacare in April.”

Chicago Tribune Drops The Hammer On Obamacare

 

 

 

” I’m sure none of us tire of reading all the news accounts and editorials that—tragically, for those affected— echo the exact concerns and criticisms we all had of Obamacare before it passed. But this one’s a particularly straightforward and thorough takedown of the administration’s amateur hour performance, in the president’s home state.

First, the technical problems:

If you’ve tried to sign up online for health coverage under the problem-plagued Obamacare exchange, our sympathies. Many people have tried to create accounts and shop for insurance under the new law. Few have succeeded. Those that have enrolled have found that the system is prone to mistakes. Some applications have been sent to the wrong insurance company…

• Illinois officials boasted that insurance premiums here would be lower than expected. But the Tribune reported Sunday that 21 of the 22 lowest-priced plans offered for Cook County residents have whopping annual deductibles of more than $4,000 for an individual and $8,000 for family coverage. That’s much more than many families can afford to pay.”

” Last week, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer made waves when he opined that the ongoing problems with ObamaCare might be reason to delay the program.

“They had three years to get this ready,” he said. “If they weren’t fully ready, they should accept the advice Republicans are giving them, delay it for a year, get it ready and make sure it works.”

Blitzer later said he was only referring to the ObamaCare exchange website. But as the rollout continues, there’s increasing evidence that an across-the-board delay would make sense — even to supporters of the law.

Enrollment Glitches. The problems marring the first days of the federal ObamaCare exchanges have not abated much over the past two weeks, despite administration promises that they’d quickly be fixed.

People who showed up at a Pittsburgh enrollment rally late last week, for example, couldn’t sign up for coverage on the federal exchange. The New York Times reports that one of its researchers hadn’t been able to log in despite more than 40 tries. A CNN reporter spent nearly two weeks trying to sign up and “failed again, and again and again.” “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sebelius Visit Fails To Reassure As Healthcare Website Glitches Persist

 

 

 

” Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius had a front-row view of the problems plaguing the website that the government established to allow people to shop for health insurance under Obamacare.

“Believe me, we had some early glitches,” said Sebelius, who was introduced by Rooney, a backer of the law. “But it’s getting better every day.”

At the back of the room, it was a different story. About 20 people armed with laptops and certified by the government to sign up people for coverage were meeting with uninsured people, answering questions and fruitlessly trying to access the website.

LaKesha Lowry, 41, came to the event to find out about her health insurance options. But the North Side resident said she was not able to access the site, even with the help of a certified application counselor.

“It said, ‘Try again later,’ ” Lowry said.
