    Since no Republicans voted for Obamacare, I don't see why they should get any blame for it.
    So they're blaming Oracle? Unless nobody is enrolled because their database entries were dropped, I don't see it.

    There aren't that many choices. Few politicians ever blame themselves so the only option left is to blame the contractor.

    More bad news about Obamacare today:

    Health Premiums Up $3,065; Obama Vowed $2,500 Cut

    "Premiums for employer-provided family coverage rose $3,065 — 24% — from 2008 to 2012, the Kaiser survey found. Even if you start counting in 2009, premiums have climbed $2,370.

    What's more, premiums climbed faster in Obama's four years than they did in the previous four under President Bush, the survey data show."

    The lies never end. The latest lie is that the rate of increase is healthcare premiums is the slowest in 50 years. That's a lie as well.

    It is not a real universal health care system. That's what is so bad about it.

    Maryland set to replace troubled health exchange with Connecticut’s system

    I think a $125.5 million boondoggle deserves a bump.

    "Maryland officials are set to replace the state’s online health-insurance exchange with technology from Connecticut’s insurance marketplace, according to two people familiar with the decision, an acknowledgment that a system that has cost at least $125.5 million is broken beyond repair."

    I wonder if Maryland officials are going to blame Oracle like the Oregon officials.

    Two New Studies Raise Red Flags on Obamacare

    Remember that 7.1 million figure that the Administration tossed out on the last day of March? That's a lie as well.

    Here's what the Rand Corporation discovered:

    1. "Only 3.9 million actually enrolled in insurance plans through state or federal exchanges – not 7.1 million as claimed by Obama."

    2. Of the 3.9 million, "43 percent already had Express Scripts coverage in 2013 – and at least some of the other 57 percent may have had coverage under another prescription-medication management service. If the total number of actual exchange enrollees is 3.9 million, the final number of previously uninsured exchange consumers may be only as high as 2.23 million."

    3. 6 million enrolled in Medicaid.

    4. 8.2 million enrolled in an employer provided plan. (7.1 million changed from the "other" category to the employer provided category)

    The delusion that Obamacare is a good idea is maintained by one giant circle jerk. If you are a "journalist", a college professor, or a bureaucrat, then these truly are the best of times for you. From my observations, it appears that these three classes derive much of the meaning and joy in their lives by praising one another and having their irrational beliefs reinforced by similarly deluded folks. In short, Obamacare is good for these guys because they're getting thrills running up and down their legs due to all the camaraderie and head-patting from others in the circle jerk.

    If it was a real universal health care system, what would be so good about it?
