Administration Says ObamaCare Site Is Working; CNN Finds Otherwise

Posted on | December 1, 2013 | 58 Comments

Elise Viebeck at The Hill reports:

The Obama administration claimed victory Sunday for making workable for the vast majority of users, a standard that will be tested as millions of people flood the site in the next three weeks.

Uh, do you really think “millions of people” will “flood the site”?

Or is that just what the administration is claiming? You might want to double-check, because claims by the Obama administration have a predictable way of turning out to be false:

ALISON KOSIK, CNN BUSINESS CORRESPONDENT: So tell me about what happened, because we’re getting another error message here, and it’s supposed to be running smoothly. . . .
MATT SLOANE, CNN MEDICAL PRODUCER: I got through. I picked my state. I put in all of my information and I got through the whole process in eight minutes. And then it said my status was in progress. So I went to refresh it and I got the error message.

The Lonely Conservative:

Noel Sheppard at NewsBusters wonders how many other news outlets didn’t bother to test the site and simply took the administration’s word that it’s now working just fine.

Honesty has never been a requirement for employment with the Obama administration — or with most of the media, either.

    “This mass ‘vote’ against O-Care is perhaps likely closely followed by many doctors and clinics going free-market”

    And we’ve already heard calls to tie licensing, ability to prescribe / fill prescriptions, etc. tied to the medical community taking government insurance…

    “Nip it in the bud!”

    Don’t worry folks. I’m sure the Obama administration will be releasing a statement real soon to blame someone else!
